Sapporo Lilac Festival begins

The Sapporo Lilac Festival began in the City of Sapporo, Hokkaido on May 15.

This festival heralds the arrival of early summer in the northern Japanese City of Sapporo.

Odori Park, where the festival is held, is located in the central part of the city.

In the park, about 400 lilac trees now have purple and pink flowers in bloom.

On the first day of the festival, some 1,000 lilac seedlings were distributed free to residents at the park.

Visitors can enjoy concerts and more than 400 kinds of wine produced in the prefecture during the festival, through May 26.
