Summer Festival and Early Autumn Taste;

*Summer Festival at Care Home*
31st of last month, one of the lady member of the band "Tenor Saxophone player" my husband involves attended Summer Festival at one of the Care Home in our city. The Chinese Character "祭 maturi " means Festival. How Lucky we were, we had cloudy weather on that day ;-)
The two music they played 1 were Japanese traditional popular Song called "enka".
The lady singer was wearing the same Kimono in the videos,

*Chestnuts from next door Neighbor and Black Kite
The first seasonal gift this year we are annually looking forward to from our next door neighbor.  These are from forest "or grove" in Atu-town Mine-city Yamaguchi-pref.; Known as "Atu-Chestnut".  I AM sure I had Full-Smiling Face when she came to our house holding this yummy gift  (˘˘) 

This Black Kite was siting on top of the Electric Pole beside the cultural hall.
I Loved his or her Courageous and also Sweet Looking Face♪
Thank you very much for stopping by ;
I always appreciate your sweet comments;

  1. Dearest Miyako,
    Indeed that kite has a sweet looking face, contrary to often some mean or harsh faces.
    The lady plays very well on her tenor saxophone.
    Sending you hugs,

  2. Looks like it was a fun festival! That enka is very familiar to me :-)
    The chestnuts look very fresh, what a lovely autumn gift! The other day, I got chestnut Yatsuhashi from visitor from Japan. It was very good!
    The black kite is beautiful. Great capture of the gorgeous face and also flying in the sky!
