[Movie] Bridal boat

The Yomiuri ShimbunA bride attired in white travels toward her groom by boat in Suigo Itako Ayame-en park in Itako, Ibaraki Prefecture, on May 28. Water transport was commonly used in this city until around 1960, and brides traditionally used a boat to go to their new families with their belongings. The tradition comes back to the area every year during the park’s annual iris festival, and 30 couples are scheduled to take part during this year’s festival period through June 26.
