Photo Highlights: Hiroshima Flower Festival

Big paper cranes and beautiful flowers

The annual Hiroshima Flower Festival held during Golden Week features a flower parade and an array of performances.

I am glad the festival was near the A-bomb dome in Hiroshima city. I got to see the performances like the Yosakoi dance parade while enjoying great food like Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki. More importantly, I was enlightened about the history of the Hiroshima bombing at the Peace Park memorial museum.

I have always been fascinated with the Japanese culture so I pursued that fascination and came to Japan. I am finally living my dream and enjoying every moment of it. I lived in Kyoto for a year and a half and recently moved to Kanagawa. There is so much to discover in Japan. Come join me in my adventure.
