SUMIYOSHI EXPOSITION, or Sumi Haku in short, is going to be held on October 9th , 10th and 11th.

Of course, it is not as big as Shanghai Expo, or it is not as big as real expositions, but this is the big event for many of local Sumiyoshi residence to explore and learn more about Sumiyoshi-ku. And also to enjoy. It is a place which has a long history, but unfortunately, there are many people who are ignorant about the fact.

There are mainly 4 places: Sumiyoshi Shrine, Sumiyoshi Park, Sumiyoshi Village Gallery (Sumiyoshi Fukushi Kaikan), and Mandai-ike (or some people say Bandai-ike) Park.
