On one of our last days there our daughter took us to the Cherry blossom festival in her local park, the Ohari. Opening the festival was a Samauri parade through the streets of town with samurai, children in costume and the mayor of Fukuoka in costume on a horse, it was really a sight to see.
In the park there were not a lot of cherry blossoms, they were late this year, but it's a beautiful park and there were tons of food stalls so the whole place smelled heavenly.
So my Five are: the Samauri parade, the cherry blossoms, the food stall, a drum and flute group and a Torii and lantern staircase at a local Shinto shrine.
