Urasa Kiku Matsuri (Urasa Chrysanthemum Festival)/浦佐菊まつり

Sorry, not a food-related topic again. I went to the Urasa Kiku Matsuri (Urasa Chrysanthemum Festival) today. Urasa is the name of a place in Minami Uonuma city. This festival is held every year inside the grounds of Fukoji, also known as Bishamondo, from October 31 through November 10 this year.

About 1,000 pots of chrysanthemums are on display.

Fudo Myo-O (Acala):

Fukoji is a five-minute walk from JR Urasa Station.

There was a strong wind blowing on the site, causing many leaves to fall. They reminded me of snowflakes falling in the winter.
