Lunch for the cherry blossom season

I had lunch at the Japanese restaurant.

covered soup bowl,covered rice bowl and a dish of assortment

rice, soup and a dish of sashimi (slices of raw fish)

At the end of lunch, a confection associated with a cherry blossom and matcha(green powdered tea) were served. The cherry trees in full bloom are depicted inside the bowl.
As in the tea ceremony, guest numbers of confections are dished up in the bowl, and each of guests takes one confection at a time with chopsticks attached to the bowl. Sharpened thin branches are used as chopsticks.
