Annual Plum Festival at Hanegi Park / 毎年羽根木公園の梅祭り

It's that time of year again. The annual plum festival at Hanegi Park. It's a nice little walk to the park from apartment and we were going to meet some friends there for an impromptu picnic.


This year, instead of buying food from the various food booths, we decided to splurge a little and bought some sushi, along with some chicken, yakisoba and vegetable sticks. And we mustn't forget the beer! Actually I treated myself to a couple of cans of ice-tea sour.

The local fire department and other local businesses had their booths but as you can tell, the fire department booth was popular with the kids.


We are not going to let the earthquakes and aftershocks stop us from having our hanami (cherry blossom viewing) this weekend either.
