Another awful picture! We saw this flag on our way home from shopping. It was dusk and there wasn't much light so the picture is fuzzy. Can you even see the flag up on the balcony? Today was Foundation Day. Tomorrow is a school and work holiday. Japan started giving three-day weekends in recent years. So, though Foundation Day is really on the 11th, the day-off is tomorrow. Maybe they'll have their flag out again tomorrow. If so, I'll replace the picture.
Next day: Nope. I'll have to wait another year for another picture. By the way, that's an ume tree in the garden. Dark fushia blossoms.
