Yesterday I went with a friend to Iriya (入谷, near Ueno), where there was a festival of Asagao (Morning Glory) (a flower, see pictures below), and Tanabata! Despite the rain, there were a lot of people, and it was really fun!
There were dozens and dozens of stands selling flowers, and there were so many types!
And I say again: despite the bad weather, it was really crowded! With or without rain, a festival is a festival! 🙂
Enjoy the pictures!
