Nerima Ward Agricultural Festival

Last month, we went to Hikarigaoka, our favorite park, and the agricultural festival for Nerima Ward was going on. It's kind of like a county fair in the US, but without the carnival aspect. Enjoy this slice of Japan.

 The idea of this game was for people to see how much CO2 was prevented from being released by buying locally grown produce.

  1. Gorgeous produce! I am so wanting those onions! Every now and then I can find yellow onions. But normally we can only find the more mild red onions. They are great for some dishes, but the punch of a yellow onion is really different.
