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