In the olden days, around the time of “Momo no Sekku”(Doll’s festival) people in Tokushima used to enjoy “Yusan”,
a picnic to a nearby field or the mountains with lunch boxes and enjoy the whole day outdoors.
Just listening to the sound of pleasant breeze and looking at the abundant greenery, the lunch tasted even more delicious.
