Shizuoka-Cannes Week in Shizuoka City (2014)!

The Cities of Shizuoka City and Cannes city in France have been sister cities for quite some time and the citizens have taken on themselves to organize events to celebrate it when they realized that the city governments were not doing enough to promote such links!

from this year the event has turned into a week-long celebration being staged in Shizuoka City, Aoi Ku, shichiken-Cho on Saturday may 17th and Sunday 18th and again in Shizuoka Ciy, Shimizu Ku on Friday may 23rd thru Sunday 25th!

I took the opportunity yesterday to take some pictures and greet many friends!
