A Memorable Summer Festival

On August 17, our annual summer festival was held!

The summer festival is held on the grounds of the primary school in my hometown, and I've attended it every year since I was a little kid, so I have a lot of memories of the festival. But I have some bitter memories too, like of setting off fireworks (which we were forbidden to do) and getting in trouble...lol

This is a picture of people gathered around the festival tower, called a yagura, and dancing to various songs.

ryota_201309_a.jpgMy enjoyment of the festival used to be about going around to the different stalls, but as I grew older, it's become like a class reunion during which I can enjoy talking to my friends from my hometown. But as always, going to a festival makes my heart dance, the smell of the food from the stalls captivates my senses, and I find myself humming the music of the festival dances. Even if the way I enjoy the festival has changed, the spirit with which I enjoy it has not changed at all.

Just remembering it makes me excited and makes my stomach rumble, so there's great value to taking part in this event!
