Japantown Cherry Blossom Festival pics


Today was the last day of the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco’s Japantown, and I walked in the big parade with my friend’s daughter and her elementary school friends. We wore yukata and got to borrow these cool orange umbrellas, which saved us from heatstroke. It was an unusually ridiculously hot day.


The float behind us hand a bunch of beauty queens on it. Pretty.


Me and my walking mate. She was a way better sport about it than I was.

  1. Wow! You both look very beautiful in your Yukata. My daughter has 2 Yukata she loves to wear, but there’s little opportunity to wear them where we live. Thank you again for posting my Dad’s picture in your Blog. 🙂
