Manjushage Festival, Koma

Relaxing and amazing at the same time

We went to Koma again on Saturday, September 21st 2013. It is one of those places that is easy to get to, relaxing and quiet but totally amazing at the same time. It is also different every time, as there's always something new to see. By my estimation, about 80% of the flowers were out. In other words, that season's peak was around the weekend of the 28/29th September. Even so, we had a very memorable time and took home many memories—and fresh chestnuts, hana nasu, etc.

Although I consider Vancouver to be my home, I'm an army brat and grew up in London, Ont., Birkenhead, UK; Soest, West Germany (then); and Petawawa, Ont. As a result, I became a rolling stone: lived in China (Chengdu), Western Auatralia  and about 30 years in Japan. It ain't over yet.
