This looks to be the season for Japanese festivals. I chanced upon people preparing for the Games Carnival part of the Japanese Cultural Festival and took some photos.
We later went to the festival another day with the free games tickets I managed to get and really enjoyed myself. I like playing the games even though I didn’t win anything other than the 1000 strings, which is really, impossible to lose.
BUT! We took a yukata photo each (well, we took together and paid for two photos instead) which was a great souvenir.
