(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners held activities in Yokohama, the central city of the Kanagawa Prefecture on May 8, 2022, to wish Master Li Hongzhi a happy birthday, and celebrate the 30th anniversary of Falun Dafa’s public introduction and the 23rd World Falun Dafa Day. Practitioners brought the goodness of Falun Dafa to local residents by having a parade, rally, group exercises, teaching the exercises, and clarifying the truth.

The events were held in the square in front of the Sakuragicho Station in Yokohama’s city centre. Many members of Japan’s parliament, who have been supportive of Falun Dafa for many years, came to the rally and gave speeches.

The parade consisted of three sections: the Tian Guo Marching Band, the exercise demonstration group, and the Waist Drum Team. The parade started off from the square in front of the station and passed by many bustling streets and areas such as the famous tourist attraction, Yamashita Coastal Park, and the Red Brick Warehouse. The two-hour-long parade attracted many passers-by and tourists to stop and watch.

Many local residents agreed with the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance and voiced their support for practitioners. They feel that Falun Dafa promotes peace and practitioners are sincere with a kind attitude. Some people said the world needs more people like this.
