6th August Toro-nagashi - Floating of Paper Lanterns

Toro Photo Album

Our memories in the past,
Engraved on stones,
Cast the shadow on the sand;
Destroyed are heaven and earth,
Left is a phantom of a flower.
Hara Tamiki

We wish our beautiful lanterns keep floating toward the future with our prayer for peace...
