Shiinomiya shrine is famous for a type of flowery plant called Rhodondendron. And the main purpose for this outing was to create opportunity for the children to spend some time with family members during this lovely season. The Japanese are so always occupied with their work and sometimes forget to ‘layan anak’. They don’t get much time to spend with the kids. So I think it’s good for the nursery to organize such occasion for the sake of the children.
Once we arrived at the shrine, we were free to have lunch bento and later participated in some activities organized by the teachers. As you can see below, the kids really enjoyed the activity so much. So much that my son was actually reluctant to go back when it was time for everyone to leave.
