Mother’s Day – Hahanohi

Posted in Places by tokyobling on May 11, 2014

Today is no ordinary day – it is the Mother’s Day here in Japan, celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year. Hahanohi (母の日) is apparently the busiest day of the year for florists across the country, so if you are going out to pick up some flowers for your mother today spare a thought for the staff in the flower shop as well! I saw these two panda in Tokyo’s Ueno district, famous for its pandas. Happy Mother’s day everyone – present as well as future moms!
