インフィオラータこうべ Infiorata Kōbe 2010

The word “infiorata” means “to deck with flowers” and it is an Italian tradition of creating paintings using flowers. The tradition was born in the Vatican basilica in 1625 being adopted by Kōbe in 1997 utilizing tulip petals provided by farmers in Toyama and Niigata prefectures. The Kōbe infiorata are setup in different areas throughout the city for 2 weeks; this photograph is from Sunday in Kitano.
