August, 2018

It’s been very very hot throughout in Japan.
It’s very hot in Nagasaki too.

Many things went on in AKARI in August and we have welcomed many guests.

On August 9th, we brought thousands of paper cranes to hypocenter.
And we donate them while wishing for peace.

On 15th of August, Syorou Nagashi, 精霊流し, was held.
It’s an annual event based on buddhism.
They make a ship for their relative who passed away this year or last year.
Ship is said to go to heaven on 15th of August at once.
Ships are decorated with many things that loved one used to like.
They carry the ships to Nagasaki port.
On the way to the port, they make fire on firecracker because noisy sounds let the souls stay away from bad things.

This guest had a happy birthday in August.
We celebrated his birthday with other guests bu singing happy birthday.
She made a surprise for him by decorating balloons and cake.
It was a happy moment.

He is a guest from Netherlands.
He was such a kind guy because he brought us coffee or some snacks almost every morning. Thank you so much for your kindness.

He likes kids.

They are cute guests from also Netherlands!

How cute she is!

It’s been very hot, but guests like them ease the hotness.
Thank you so much.
From tomorrow, it’s going to be September.
We hope the sun will be tired..
Thanks for reading!

Wish For Peace 2018

9th of August was Nagasaki Peace Day.
In the morning of the 9th August this year, which was few days ago, we went to the atomic bomb hypocenter and donated thousands of paper cranes folded by our guests who visited AKARI.

You can see how it went from below page.
