Kaminokawa Town Summer Festival


We, as Utsunomiyans, used to go to the local summer festival called "Tenno sai (天王祭)". But this year, Ms. T. was encouraged to carry mikoshi at the Summer festival in Kaminokawa town (上三川町) by her friend, Sayaka SATO. Her family owns a fancy construction company (佐藤材木店) there.

We went there, had the same outfit as you can see in this photo and had a good time.

We really appreciate Ms. and Mr. Sato's hospitality!!!

    Lina, Ms T is busy preparing proof that she carried mikoshi. Give me a couple of hours.

  14. Since festival is the one which celebrates our tradition, it's no wonder our genes get stimulated to the festive spree. The photography tactics you invented last time seem to be working well. Superb photo, Yoshi-san!
