Hiroshima Flower Festival 09, Welcome Again



Bird-shaped origami ready to be lit in the night.

Welcome to Hiroshima Flower Festival 2009. Hiroshima Flower Festival has been held every year from the 3rd to the 5th of May, during Golden Week since 1977. The festival is located on Peace Boulevard, one of the main streets in Hiroshima city and within Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park area.
My new theme for this week (or maybe longer :)). This time we're going a tour in the city. It takes about 40 minutes by train from Saijo station to Hiroshima station.
Yuri San: Nani de Hiroshima ni ikimasuka? (How are we going to Hiroshima?)
Hiro San: Densha de ikimasu (We take train)

And here is me thinking that origami was rather small paper foldings. These are amazing!
