Aisatsu

This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Hakata Gion Yamakasa, July 11th



Ta-nagaregaki
The floats are carried to the nagare borough boundary, and neighboring teams pay their respects to each other. 

他流舁き(夕方) 
他の流区域まで出向いての流舁きで、相互表敬訪問のようなものです。 

It had been raining most of the day and there was a torrent at the time we were waiting for the float of Higashi nagare to pay their respect to JR at Hakata Station. Miraculously it STOPPED just a few minutes before the gang arrived and the break lasted as long as the ceremony. The moment they turned the corner it poured again.
