Last Sunday June the 5, the sun was shining, the weather was warm. We woke up late -as usual-, had late lunch, and then we wondered what to do next. We've been talking about exploring the city more. I mean, it's more than just going to the campus and shops.
Map of Saitama prefecture. Honjo city is that red Kanji. Tokyo is right below Saitama prefecture.
And we found out another park in Honjo city besides Honjo Sogo Park on the map. It's Furusato park. We'd never been there because it looked far from our apato. Remember: we go everywhere by bike! So, the sun was high already when out of the blue Papap challenged us to go. Then, off we went!
from our apato...
Hikari was ready with his ball. He was trying to show you the ball, by the way.
And, after 30 minutes biking, we finally got there!
some of the flowers
As a flower park, there was not much to see about the flowers, I think, because I expected a park full of flowers. Flowers everywhere! Or perhaps, roses, my fave! It looked just like my garden -if I ever had one- without proper care...
But, as a park, it is really nice. It's all green because of the trees, and cool because of the small river.
And the most important thing is Hikari enjoyed the trip and the park. He made friend with a pretty girl, too.
So, Hikari was busy playing bubbles with Ma-chan, or kicking ball with Papap. Me? I enjoyed the grass so much. Reading a book while lying on the grass is an experience I may not be able to repeat if I'm back in Jakarta :(
It's just a usual family picnic here in Japan. Wondering if we could do a 'park' picnic backhome... sigh...
