It's Wisteria's blooming season!

Last Wednesday... Liza and I decided to visit Rengeji Park in Fujieda by bus to take a break and release some stress thru flower viewing... This season Rengeji Park is celebrating the Fuji Matsuri or Wisteria Festival. Like Sakura flower, Wisteria is also one of the most popular flowers in Japan.
It's not only the beauty but also the fragrance of wisteria is enchanting.
We enjoyed the flowers under the arbor called FUJIDANAClimbing vine... wisteria. It is usually violet but it also have pink, blue, white and even yellowish colorsNo wonder why the Japanese love this flower!

↓KOINOBORI... colorful carp streamer. The traditional displaying of KOINOBORI is a part of Boy's Day celebration on every May 5th of the year. KOINOBORI are shaped like carps because carps are strong fish and it symbolizes the healthy and strong growth of children. KOINOBORI streamers fly in the air on the mid of the park's pond A nostalgic scene from cottage windowFlowers everywhere! The wisteria fest in Rengeji Park will end up to May 6th.

It was about 4 years ago since Liza and I visited the Wisteria Fest in Fujieda and that was trully impressive and memorable as what we experienced last Wednesday!
