Hello fellow festival lovers !
So many marvelous attractions and distractions are happening this summer and the most difficult thing is to make sure you don’t forget to do your work!
In downtown Kobe last Saturday Aug 8, we saw the Kobe Minato Hanabi Taikai fireworks festival, one that has always been among the favorites of English Conversation students at the Smith’s School of English in Kotoen スミス英会話 甲東園. Friday night had the hugely successful Biwako festival in Otsu, Saturday Aug 8 also lit up big in Osaka at Yodogawa, and tonight is the world famous Uji-gawa Hanabi Taikai in southern Kyoto.
Every night a short summer thunderstorm has blazed and tonight promises to have one also. We hope that it ends just before the marvelous Uji show is scheduled to start. That way the crowd can be kept to a minimum.
Next up is the Tsuruga Summer Festival on Aug 16, our favorite show in Kansai. Oh, but it isn’t technically Kansai is it? 🙂 Take care in the crowds and brings lots of drinking water.
