Japanischer Kulturtag

Last week we had our "Japanischer Kulturtag" (~ Japanese culture day), an event also known as the "Kirschblütenfest" (~ celebration of the cherry blossom) even though the cherry blossoms are long gone. Basically there are several activities going on about Japan: they show different sports, you can learn about ink painting etc pp. This year we also had a little photography exhibition about the tsunami & earthquake.

Also, you can paint lanterns for the Tōrō nagashi (a Japanese ceremony) too. Around 22:30 PM they set off fireworks on the Alster. All in all, it's quite nice and I've been going there for years now. 

This time I tried taking photos too, but I didn't like them that much.. so most of the photos in this entry are actually just flowers from the Planten & Blomen xD

I liked the hearts. They also had smiley faces but couldn't capture those.
