I enjoyed the post and the video very much.
Actually, as a Japanese, I have known of this festival for many years but imagined something rather boring because it is all about 'Awaodori' one style of traditional folk dance anyway. But what I see here is impressive! So much of different dance style, rhythms and costumes. Everything is so colorful and joyful.

I'd go and see next year.


Thanks for the very nice comment. Yes, being there is an incredible experience. I'm glad we accidently went this year, and if, by chance, we are still here next year, we'll make a plan to got together.

Hey ! ^^
Great blog ^^
Since you seem to be living in Japan I have a question.
Actually I would like to know if you or readers of this blog are interested in writing about the way you have personnally experienced the Northeastern Japan Earthquake (if you haven't but you know people who have experienced the earthquake in Japan, it'd be great if you coud let him/her know about this).
Tokyo Room Finder Short Essay Contest is an online project to gather heart-warming experiences following the earthquake in Japan. We strongly believe that sharing those experiences will give people hope and revitalize Japan.
We also offer 2 tickets for Tokyo Disney Resort to each of the winners.

Hello Benjamin,
Thanks for your comment. Sure, I'll keep this link in here, so that anyone who stumbles upon my blog and wants to enter the contest can find it.

Good luck, and I hope that your project goes well.

Thank you very much for your reply.

And thank you very much for your cooperation.
We can read a lot of personal stories written by japanese people on the net or on TV regarding the eartquake but not so many by foreigners (or scattered on numerous blogs). So we would like to collect those stories and gather them on one site.
