ハナショウブ

7 Jun

Today we went to a 「花菖蒲祭」 (Japanese Iris flower festival).

It was near our house, so we rode our bicycles there. On the way, we stopped by a store and bought some 弁当 (Japanese bento lunches) and had a picnic among all the purple flowers.

It had been raining for the past couple of days, but today was a beautiful day…and the temperature was 28°C (82.4°F). It’s becoming summer. Before long, it will be extremely hot in Tokyo!

    It sounds like you all had a very nice day together. the lunch sounds like it was a good idea and those flowers are beautiful. Dad and I spent yesterday at an Arts and Craft festival. it was fun, esp. a band that played. it consisted of 3 adult men and 3 young boys, an 11 yr old on guitar, a 9 yr. old on fiddle and a 6 yr old on a fiddle too. two of the boys wore dark sunglasses with black shirts and they could play really well. they were so cute too. we really enjoyed the day.

    I wish I had somewhere like this for me to walk to for a change instead of this city where Im at dodging cracked walk ways or crossing the road, traffic and noise pollution, ah the price one has to pay for moving out from home. You live in a very beautiful part of the world.

      I live in a big city. Actually, I like living in a large city very much.

      Thank you. It rained a little bit this morning, though. But it’s forecast to be a nice day tomorrow.
      This time of the year if the “rainy season” for most of Japan.
