Buoyed by the success of  my first  food blog   , I confidently  slung my camera across my shoulder for a bit’e’ of JAPAN in New Delhi.

The aim was to visit Sakura, a  restaurant specializing in Japanese Cuisine  in the Metropolitan Hotel located near the famous Connaught Place shopping area of New Delhi.

However  was I  in for  a memorable  surprise as  I  saw these  elegant  ladies dressed in traditional Japanese Kimonos ,the moment we stepped into  the restaurant.

I prodded my wife Sharmila  to request them for a photograph. What followed was beyond my wildest dreams.

Not only did they yes, but  I was immediately and  delightfully surrounded by these gorgeous ladies who spoke only Japanese.

Their smiles, warmth  and gestures  immediately broke all language barriers.

They were a group of about twelve and soon everyone wanted a photograph with us. The photographer became the subject. It was indeed an unforgettable moment.

Lucky me

The desire to post a picture in a blog resulted in a BIT OF JAPAN touching our hearts.

These wonderful ladies had embraced us with their warmth and  beauty.

This blog is dedicated to these lovely, friendly and gracious guests from Japan.

Sayonara .

Be with me as the next  blog is on the FOOD at SAKURA.
