Nagoya Agricultural Center – Weeping Plum Blossom Festival

Today, Teddy and I walked across the river to go to Sunima, an Indian restaurant. We both got salad, soup, and lentil curry, and we got different kinds of naan.

We got the coconut, cherry and nut naan, and the adzuki bean and cheese naan and shared them. They were pretty good, but a little weird.

After lunch, we took the subway to Hirabari to go see the Weeping Plum Blossom Festival at the Nagoya Agricultural Center.

    The ducks are so cute!! Do they have coats on or are the wings decorated?

    I like the decorated gourds. The flowers are very pretty. Of course, I like the animal pictures. The exotic chickens are awesome!
