The 4th Himawari in Kitanakagusuku
Himawari (Sunflower) gives a poetic charm to summer.
That’s the image I have had of sunflowers until I saw a local newspaper article with a picture showing plenty of sunflowers are in full bloom in farmlands in the wintertime.
It was a complete culture shock to a person like me, who moved from the mainland Japan.
Himawari means “sunflower” .
