In the solar calendar of East Asian cultures, May 5 or “Lixia” marks the beginning of Summer. The season was ushered in with the blooming of 60,000 Easter lilies at Okinawa Comprehensive Athletic Park in Okinawa City.

Many families viewed the lillies while visiting the park for the Golden Week holidays.
Miyazato Elementary School pupil Reira Higa, who visited with her parents, said, “Many flowers were in full bloom and beautiful. I enjoyed the sweet smell of the flower.”

The lily reached full bloom at the end of April, and will continue to be until this weekend.

Park staff Eriko Kina said, “I would like many people to visit the park.”
