3/11 Kids' Photo Journal
I went to Yuriage where lanterns have been prepared for lighting.
Many of the lanterns were very beautiful.
There were many flower offerings at memorial monument.
I could see there were many visitors. I also offered flowers and pray for the victims.
I also went to the morning market. Many people grilled fish on the charcoal.
I wanted to grill a fish but it was crowded with so many people that I unable. It was such a pity.
There were lanterns placed all the way from Mt.Hiyoriyama to the playground of Yuriage Elementary School. I got out of the car, walked along the lanterns and then took the photos.
Many people stared at me so I was embarrassed.
