Happy Easter♪

As we live in the country of Buddhism, not many Japanese people know about Easter. Behind the story about celebrating the resurrection of the Lord. And the connection with the eggs and new lives. Maybe children know egg hunt through games :-)
I was expecting to see Easter Decoration at my favorite cake shop. Although it is bit early, Bunnies were also used in the assorted sweets for coming Mother's day & Children's(boy's) Festival (link to my post) as well.  
From the Chinese legend, carp is thought to be a symbol of success. In Japan, we fly Carp Streamers to wish children's (especially boys') future success.




I DO hope you are spending or will spend 
a wonderful Easter Day♡♡♡

Thank you very much for stopping by.

Hi,Miyako sama. It was a very beautiful full moon night in Tokyo.
I did not know Easter decoration sweets were sold in cake shop.
Easter and Buddha's birthday was the same day in 2012.
Thanks for sharing. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

Such pretty Easter pictures -- I love the eggs as the holder for the flowers -- a great idea.

We had a non-traditional Easter, since we are still away from family.
