For a little while on my blog there will be no news, I`m already in Kitakata, Japan for a month, weather is very hot and humid, at present a typhoon is heading south of here .... everything normal.
Today begins the town Matsuri, the town celebration, with a lot of food, drinks, (traditional) music with drums of all dimensions, everybody wears traditional clothes, me too! I`ll be back soon with new pictures. (initially posted without pictures on the 2nd of August 2007)
For the matsuri people usually wears yukata, is the same shape of kimono but is in cotton, suitable for Summer, and people partecipating at the matsuri wears happy, is a jaket in cotton with a draw or sign on the back to show their group or neighborhood, like this on the side.
