Today, the Sun came out between clouds after few weeks we had cloudy days.I was so happy to see the Sun. Today's sunset was so beautiful. I took these photos at Ohori Koen. I guess that I'll visit this beautiful park often as I did last year.
Today, I went to Tanjin, Fukuoka. When I was passing by Mistukoshi, suddenly Taiko performance started. I was so lucky, I was there just the time. I enjoyed their powerful musical performance from the beginning to the last. All members looked so cool. Name of the group is "Toyo-no-kuni, Yuhuin, Genryudaiko". Thanks to the all members for giving us such a wonderful time.
There is a Hakosaki-gu flower garden along to the way to the shrine. From today to end of February, the garden opens for showing tree peony. Its Japanese name is Botan. These beautiful gorgeous flowers are in protectors from snow made of straws. I guess that the flowers are probably very beautiful in snow. If I have a chance, I would like to visit this garden after snow covers on ground. Actually, we are having snowy days, but it hasn't covered the ground yet. Entrance fee of this garden is 500 yen.
A Happy New Year! Today, I supposed to go to the Hakosaki-shrine, which is a very old shrine (click here), for making a wish of this year. Actually, I went there, but when I saw a looong line, I gave up the plan. Instead, I enjoyed watching many food stalls along to the way to the shrine. It was cloudy with occasional rain and snow. In Tokyo, where is my home town, it is almost clear every year this season. So the weather here is very different from that of Tokyo. It was cold too. Anyway, I hope that this year will be a very good one for you.
