Koma flowers and Kawagoe (Little Edo)
September 24th, 2006
Already at Koma station there were small flags to show that we were right
On the way to the main spot, there were already several amaryllis flowers
So this was what we came for... thousands of blooming flowers in the shade of some trees
Too bad that they decided to make the car park for busses there...
With all these big red flowers getting so much attention, this blue one must have felt quite lonesome
One more, and I wont bother you with the other 50 (which is already a strict selection of the 200 or so I took...)
Using my wide-angle lens it was no problem getting the whole building on the picture, even in this narrow alley
The shop selling knives and scissors, from the inside
The famous tower of Kawagoe
Some more Edo-style buildings
Shop selling rice crackers
Traditional/festivity clothing for the whole family!
