|Which way to go?|
I had previously seen the flowers in season for two summers in a row - passing by them everyday during my commute on the Chiba Urban Monorail (a morning treat, as the flowers blossom in the morning!), and yet I failed to actually go see them up close. So I decided that before leaving Chiba, I absolutely needed to take a trip to the park.

And here's a random piece of trivia - these lotus flowers are the base for Chiba City's mascot character, Chihana-chan.
