Festival at next-city

Early this month, the band group my husband involves attended the city festival. You can see the little kids played Japanese Taiko. They were so cute♡♡♡  And there was a kind of show selling bananas with funny or delightful sales pitch. 

And inside of the hall,  we could enjoy many handcraft groups' works.  I'm  just showing a few of them. I'm amazed with the bride dolls "Hanayome dolls花嫁人形. And special beautiful "hagoita racket" designed as the 12 Oriental Zodiac Signs.


I'm linking this post for 'Our world Tuesday'
