Strange “festival” by my station

It’s not often I’m completely stumped after all these years, but I have absolutely no idea what this “Shinkoiwa eki hiro festival” is going on by my station right now. A couple of photos followed by a very short video.

I looked for a minute and then just shook my head and headed for my bus.

Mankai along the Nakagawa – 4 April 2016

Today was supposed to be rainy, but the skies cleared and the weather is beautiful. I just came back from a bike ride along the Nakagawa, and you can see the sakura are in peak full bloom today, with some petals beginning to fall.

The video is a 45 second bike ride along the river looking at the cherry trees. Below that are some photos from today.
