Umi no Hi

Today was Umi no Hi, or Marine Day, or Sea Day in Japan. To celebrate, we attended the Lantern Festival in Odaiba. In the beach park on this island connected to Tokyo, hundreds of paper lanterns covered the sand. It was a beautiful scene, marking the beginning of summer. I loved looking at the bridge with lighted boats beside it.
