Kurihama Flower World

Last week we took the train down to Kurihama Flower World.  I think we hit it  between peak blooming times, but it was still beautiful.  And there is an awesome park with a giant Godzilla.  So it was worth every ichi-yen.

Actually, the park is free, so that's even better.
These first few fields were full of poppies.  I really wanted to make Ellie lay down in the them and say, "Poppies, poppies will make them sleep.  Sleeeeep."

There was a huge line of the koi wind sock-things that they put out for Children's Day.

Ellie making some Japanese friends, who taught her how to blow dandelions.

On the roller slide. She loved it!

We enjoyed two servings of Lavender ice cream (one at the start of our excursion, and one at the end).  It was quite tasty! We also rode the little "train" they had, which was probably the highlight for Ellie, who loves trains more than her Uncle Philip did as a little boy (he would always say he wanted to be a train engine-antor).
