Aloha!

ハイに桜の季節がやってきました。ハワイと行ってもハワイ島だと標高が高く、温度があまり高くならないワイメアの町で見ることができます。
毎年2月の初旬にワイメア桜祭りが開催されます。ワイメアはヒロからは1.5時間の位置にあるのでちょっと遠いと思うかもしれませんが、桜を見に行く価値はあるのではないでしょうか。
ハワイで桜を見たことがあると自慢ができますね!

さて、こちらの生徒さんはどのようにこのお祭りを楽しんだのでしょうか。ぜひ読んでみてください。

I went to Waimea Cherry Blossom Festival. It was good and I had fun.
I saw beautiful Okinawan cherry blossoms and watched performances like, Taiko drums and Okinawan Eisa-dance. I saw a Lion dance too. The lion was blue, and the face was so funny and cute.
To be honest, the cherry blossoms were not like I was expecting, but those were still beautiful.
All of trees were leaning and my friend told me that was because of the direction of wind.
Waimea was kind of cold and rainy for me.
However, breeze was comfortable.
I felt weird that I was like I was in Japan, but I was also glad that people from here loved Japan a lot so I want to appreciate them.
If you have not been to Cherry blossom festival yet, I want you to try to go and feel Japan there.
