This is Muromi river.
It flows through Fukuoka city.
My great-grandfather, grandfather and father were living in the place that was not far from this river.  My family members like to talk about the appearance of old Fukuoka to me.
And therefore I have feeling it seems that I am living in this town 200 years...

 Today is the first day of Obon period(in my town). Many Japanese believe their ancestral souls will come back to their home in Obon period(once a year). 

In Obon period, there are various things that  have to do

to offer up these sweets to the Buddhist altar of the family.

to offer up these foods to the Buddhist altar of the family.

to make white dumpling.

to display a lantern.
