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.

Yamakasa, the final








追山笠(4:59~) 

On the final day floats start racing from 4:59am.
But only the first turn in front of the Kushida Shrine is timed.
Winning is not important.
From the Kushida Shrine the 7 groups run through the streets over a 5km course. At 6:00 it’s all over. 
Kort maar krachtig









Returning to base covered in bandages, still thrilled with excitement.
