Hirosaki Chrysanthimum Festival

Late October we went up to Hirosaki for their annual chrysanthemum festival. Despite how many years we had been living in Japan, we had had never made it for this festival. I’m not quite sure what I was expecting, I think perhaps a bunch of old ladies and potted flowers is what I had imagined. While there were some, it was mostly these amazing displays made entirely of flowers. I really liked the samurai era displays where all their clothing was made of flowers.

  1. Did you get Sanrio stuff?


  2. I did! I got a HK wash cloth of her holding apples or something. I’ll have to dig all my Sanrio stuff out and take a picture. ^^
