Lovely this “Festival of Repayment of Kindness”. We perhaps should all take part.

There is no harm in these wondrous cultural sentimentalities,

to wish for the health and welfare of others, especially children.

Wishing peace, good health and good fortune to all who visit here today.

How delighted these young people must be to share their joy!

All foreign residents and returning tourists add to the shared experience that is our beloved Japan.

I do not support Japan’s choice for continued commercial whaling. I am however touched by sentimentality of the boy sending off the man who may be his father, waiving goodbye in the hatchway of the ship.

While this photo appears to promote an element of Japan’s nationalism,

maybe this boy will learn to love and respect the seas and devote his life to conserving all of nature’s creatures rather than just exploitation for profit.

Peace is wished to all who see this here today.

For pet lovers, our lives would feel empty without God’s great gift of companionship from domestic cats and dogs.

Even the passing glimpse of another’s pet during our daily commute can brighten a day. The world would be a desolate place without them.

Wishing peace and happiness to all pet lovers (and even those just tolerant of them ; ) who come here today.

Such lovely hues at twilight do call to mind Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away.

Agree with your little one that our inquisitive gentleman there could be a character himself.

Heartbreaking. Japan can do much better for those we’ve chosen to shepherd here. Live up to your responsibilities and do not abandon the helpless.

Thank you for your lovely sunflower poem, Mr. starpunk. Flowers are nature fireworks. There as now many azaleas in bloom across Japan. Would love to read more.

Yes, Japan is beautiful!! We have such lovely floral displays across the entire country.

Japan should once again open to all tourists and, most importantly,

open to all those seeking refuge from turmoil abroad.

Wishing peace, love and prosperity to all who come here.

That lovely story above of India’s great past is also quite beautiful. There’s a multitude of histories and customs here and shows we can all have similar ideas care for our communities and share this earth. 

Let’s work toward a great peace and abundance for all from now.

Lovely night photo of such drama with the fire illuminating the men’s faces and the silhouettes of these wonderful birds hard at work.  

This is the Japan we want to again share with the world.

May the love intended by these bright flowers bring some light to such a dark tragedy.

Wishing a peace to come over the families of those so senselessly lost to the sea.

Lovely irises, sir but beg to differ. Hay fever in Japan is also from our flowering plants and grasses, not just our trees.  We suffer with all but still very much love our nature.
