And it has already started falling in Tokyo.

Cherry blossoms tell us the spring is coming. 

Many people have a party under the cherry tree.

They look up the beautiful pink sky and enjoy food, beer and sake.

Summer festival

Have you seen Japanese summer festival?

You can see a Japanese traditional creation

It's called "Mikoshi" which is small shrine.

Men worn white long cloth are carrying it.

"Mikoshi" has heavy weight.

It needs many strong men for carrying it.
They carry it and  parade the street  with shouting 

" Oiyasa Oiyasa!"


753 celebration, which is called "Shichi-Go-San" in Japan.

Shichi-Go-San is a traditional event to celebrate the healthy growth of children. This festival is for three and five year-old boys and three and seven year-old girls. Children dress up in kimonos or dresses. Parents take them to a shrine and have a Shinto purification ritual. It's my boy. He is 5 years old now.
