Lantern Festival

Hi, everyone.
How are you doing?

We are having one of the biggest festival in Nagasaki called “Lantern Festival”.
It’s held based on Chinese New Year.
All the city area is covered with beautiful lanterns, so it’s very beautiful.

This one is shot in China town.

This one is shot in Minato park.

This is a lion dance. They also have dragon dance.

It’s near China town.
Pink colored lanterns are so beautiful.

This one is near Spectacles bridge.
Yellow lanterns are so beautiful.

There are many guests who come to Nagasaki for the festival.
They are illustrators and came to Nagasaki by hitchhiking.

They became friends in the hostel.
It’s good to make a new friends while you are on vacation 🙂

They are friendly Korean boys.
I hope they enjoyed their stay in Nagasaki.

We had a nice time with them 🙂
Thanks for staying with us!

Spring is just around the corner.
We’re excited to see Sakura flowers.
See you next time!

January

Hi, everyone!
It’s cold in Nagasaki city.

In January, we had guests who are college students from USA!
They were so nice and we had a great time with them 🙂
Thank you so much for your stay!

On the last day, each student had a presentation about what they discovered or learned about Japan.
It was interesting to know how American students feel about Japan and what is interesting about Japan for them.

After the presentation, we threw a farewell party.
We served them Sara Udon which is one of Nagasaki specialities.

We had a really nice time with them!
We hope they also enjoyed their stay in Nagasaki and come back to Nagasaki again.

In the middle of January, we had heavy snow.
This is a neighbor of Hostel AKARI.

As February starts, they already started preparing Lantern Festival that is going on between 16th Feb and 4th Mar.
We’re so excited.

We made an original information board.
If you have an opportunity, please have a look at it and enjoy the festival.

Recently, we have many family guests.
This cute family is from Spain.
Look at baby’s face, he is so cute 🙂

This family is from Taiwan.
They went to Bio Park, which is a zoo in Nagasaki,
They enjoy the zoo!
Thank you for your stay!

It’s getting cold in Japan.
Take a good care of yourself everybody.
See you soon!
