Nelson’s Matsuri

As many of you will know, I’m crazy about Japanese culture. Today, London saw the Japan Matsuri 2012 hit Trafalgar Square – a day of Japanese music, dance, food and fun! There’ll be more about that over at Haikugirl’s Japan soon, but for now, here’s a festival lantern and Nelson’s Column. The Japanese writing (kanji) on the lantern (祭) says ‘matsuri’, which means ‘festival’.
