How much fun, my dear friend! Your pictures are so good that I felt like I was right there with you, even to smelling the smoke! I love the color and how everyone puts themselves completely into the celebration. It makes me feel festive, myself!

Have a wonderful week! xo

Hallo dear Miyako. Once again, you are sharing your country's traditions and festivals with us. They do seem to be very important to your country and rightly so. It is so good to see that these traditions are continuing to be upheld. What beautiful, colourful photos, and I love the little collage. Always a pleasure to pop by to see you dear friend. Hugs x

Dearest Miyako,
That must have made quite a lasting impression on those kids as well. Great for keeping your beautiful culture alive.

This looks like lots of fun! I like the costumes the city workers are wearing and the dragons are wonderful! Thanks, Miyako.

Wow omikoshi look great! And the dragon is amazing! So gorgeous. What a fun to see all of them moving through the city! I sure miss omatsuri in Japan.
I forgot Tsuyu is coming to Japan soon! It will be very jime jime... :-( I hope Tsuyu passes by quickly!
