Today, I went to one of the two locations in the city for the annual Shrine Festival.  Like last week’s Yosakoi Soran Festival, the city’s inhabitants all migrated to enjoy the rituals, games, and food stands in the midst of the gorgeous weather.  While most people dressed in their daily western-styled clothing, some women and children were outfitted in their yukata, or casual summer kimono.  One of these days, I hope also to have/wear a yukata or kimono; it should be fun.

Anyways, below is another of my amateur attempts to capture a little bit of the festival.  Hope you like it!
