Sunflowers, Bikes, and Boats at Showa Kinen Park

Hello 皆さん!

Today, my friends and I went to Showa Kinen Park at Tachikawa to celebrate Satchiko’s birthday. We just wanted to bike around, eat something cold (kakigori / shaved ice), and do some catching up.. but we did more activities than what we all expected, haha!

We weren’t aware that there were sunflowers in full bloom (and baby sunflowers growing) inside the park!

It was my first time to see so many sunflowers in one place. What a delight it was! 😀

Gulping down this Almond Milk from the vending machine. So yummy!

If you want to have a peaceful biking session with friends inside a park, I suggest Showa Kinen Park!

 I got envious of my cousin Gil when he went biking here last Spring with his friends ~

Satchiko persuaded us to try boating. How could we resist the birthday girl’s request..?? :))

  1. The flowers are so cheery and lovely! It reminded me of an uncle I once knew in a school. He would plant his own sunflowers in a garden patch, and would place fake ones that faced weird directions just to get a second look from the passer bys. He was a jolly fellow!

  2. @Amaya: Wow, that’s a very interesting story, haha. I used to have a “sunflower” that I treated as a “pet”..lololol. I thought I was the only “jolly” one when it comes to himawari.

    @Sophie: Sunflowers make me smile too! 🙂
