Kariya Park

Kariya Park 045


I have seen the name, Kariya on street names in Mississauga, and thought it was a bit odd.  No wonder,  it is the name of our twin city in Japan!  Not only that, but Mississauga has a built a garden in honour of the long friendship between the two municipalities.  Today, Becky and I decided to have a look.  The weather was gorgeous, so we went without coats!

It’s beautiful!  And it’s right in the heart of the city.  What a lovely surprise.

As we wandered around, we came across this…

Kariya Park 014


It’s a photomosaic of the Festival Mando Matsuri that has been held in Kariya annually for two hundred years.  Can you see what fascinated us?

Kariya Park 015


It is made up of tiny photos that have been taken in the two cities over the years.  All the people that have visited, all the celebrations, all pasted together to make up this picture.  How much happiness in one spot?  Wonderful!

We had a really lovely walk together.  The weather was warm and Becky loves Japanese Gardens.  It was really a special afternoon.  Hope you enjoy…
