Hi everyone!

My goodness, it's been a while since our last update.

Anyways, onto the featured media!

It's your favorite HollyHock Radio! This one doesn't involve so much laughter, but it definitely has Aoi musing to himself about yukata and his cute little male fantasies about girls and their outfits.

Hope you enjoyed that! Sakai seems so timid while Aoi sounded like he was in his yukata-filled world. At some point, it even sounded like a yukata fetish........

At any rate, if you loved listening to Aoi drift off about his clothing fantasies, then follow MICHIDO with an Email Subscription on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube!



Hi everyone!

The blog has been really quiet mostly due to how chock-full everyone's schedules are with other things.

But this week is a really special week in Japan.

That's right! The sakura are in bloom, which definitely calls for a ohanami (flower viewing).

To give you a bit of a live experience, MICHIDO did a bit of vlogging to show you how many other people were enjoying the beautiful flowers.

Sakura is celebrated mostly because the blooms are only for a very short period of time. What's the best way to celebrate the blooms?

Basically, here in Japan, you break out the alcohol. My personal favorite is Sakura Wine. There is barely a hint of alcohol, and you can savor the sweetness while watching the sakura drift down.

Plenty of people also bring food and snacks, and there are many traditional matsuri, or festival, foods and activities.

The most important thing about hanami is really to enjoy the time with your friends and family. The forecasters in Japan predict the week the sakura will bloom, and as a result, everywhere with cherry blossom trees was crowded with people enjoying the beautiful weather and flowers with their loved ones.

I hope you all can also enjoy hanami wherever you are! If you have a hanami experience, you should definitely share it with us with a comment or a video reply!
