There are a lot of rivers around the city, one of which seems to attract swans every year. Kenji has pointed them out before, but this year when we noticed they were there, we decided to actually go and see them instead of just talking about doing it. We had great timing too… the sunset that day was really beautiful!
That same weekend we also went to the Gunma Flower Park, since they were advertising a Hina Matsuri (girl’s doll festival) event. Unfortunately, most of the flowers in the park were not blooming yet, but the greenhouses were worth it, and the flowers for the festival were pretty nice, so it didn’t feel like a total waste. After that we ate at a famous pork cutlet restaurant called Tonton Hiroba.
