Every year in May, with over 1,000,000 visitors from all over Japan, the Hiroshima Flower Festival is one of the largest events in the country. For three days along the Hiroshima Peace Boulevard, people take to the streets to celebrate with music, dancing, parades, and, of course, flowers. Entire towers of them!

The celebration even continues into the night, featuring lighted candles that contain messages of peace and hope written by local community members.
