According to Weathernews, this year's cherry blossoms will start blooming around March 21st. It's still cold, so it's not a good idea, but in about three weeks, the cherry blossoms will bloom and the cherry-blossom viewing season will come.
The question about the cherry blossom viewing is the "blue sheet". People who see cherry blossoms lay it under the cherry blossom trees and enjoy drinking alcohol and eating lunch boxes, but blue sheets are used at construction sites and incident sites, aren't they? Isn't it not suitable for the fun atmosphere of cherry blossom viewing?
Ecos, which sells cardboard products, has announced a table and chair set "Ohanami 4-seat" that is perfect for cherry-blossom viewing. It is said that orders will be accepted from February 29th and sales will start from March 15th.
"Ohanami 4-seat" is a set of 1 table and 4 foldable chairs. The table can be used as a case to carry the entire set.
Cardboard has a high heat insulating effect, so sitting on this chair will make you feel warmer than sitting on a blue sheet on the ground. Using a table will reduce the risk of accidentally knocking it down compared to placing a cup or the like directly on the ground. Cardboard also has the advantage of being easy to recycle and dispose of.
I'm still dissatisfied with the design if it's a little more fashionable, but it's still much better than the blue sheet. How about as a first step to escape from cherry blossom viewing on the blue sheet?
The size of the table is 51 cm wide x 39 cm deep x 38 cm high, and the chair is 20.7 cm wide x 18.5 cm deep x 29.7 cm high. The total weight of the set is 1.8 kg. The price is 2,680 yen (excluding consumption tax). You can buy it from the Anywhere Door website instead of Anywhere Door.
