Last Sunday, I walked to Hanami around Kagami-gawa river in Kochi City.
Former article, I wrote about some Hanami spot around Kagami-gawa
This article is about another Hanami spot; Kochi-jo Castle.
Kochi-jo Castle, which is located center of Kochi city, is popular Hanami spot among people living in Kochi. Every year a lot of people hold Hanami party there.
Since 2009 Hana-Kairou (花回廊) Festival has beeh held in Kochi-jo castle. Of course, Hana means flower and Kairou means a corridor. So Hana-Kairou means a corridora gallery of flower.
Watch some photos of Hana-Kairou below.
