Girls leading the mikoshi procession:


And here's a video (well, one of them) of the procession:

We explained about the tekomai girls (in great detail) here.

How hopeful to see past and present melting into future.

Please have you all a good Sunday.

栃木県、宇都宮はとてもエネルギー溢れる街なのですね。今まで全くご縁がなくて、実はちょっと圧倒されています。それは、写真から溢れ出すエネルギーなのかもしれないですね。

Hi Anzu,
コメントありがとうございます。もし栃木県に足を向ける機会がありましたら、連絡ください。写真は宇都宮市の南東に位置する真岡市の例大祭の写真ですが、私達のお気に入りの町です。もしよければ僕らのもうひとつのブログにも遊びに来てください。真岡市と例大祭についてのエントリーが複数あります。


Hi Japy,
If you ever plan to visit Japan, please let us know. We can take you around and then you can see these traditions with your own eyes.

Hi Robert,
I miss summer already. It's my favorite festival season...

I really like this photo of those girls in their special costumes! Brings me back to my days of festival watching in Gifu-ken!
