Ume blossom season has come! It’s getting warmer day after day:)
I went to Sapporo Snow festival for the first time in a long time.
I arrived in Sapporo two days before the festival starts, so I was able to see the ice/snow statues were being made.
I visited Ebis shrine festival last Saturday. There are many Ebis shrines all over the nation, but especially in Kansai, they often have annual Ebis festival in January.
