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.

Tanabata festival part 2

When it gets dark around 40 local women dance the "bon odori" balancing the lantarns on their heads

Followed by the final act: a professional performance on a floating platform adorned with intricately curved bamboo strips in one of the shrine's ponds.

  And that is the end of yet another colorful Japanese matsuri
