Since I don’t speak Japanese, most of the events that I end up seeing are by chance. I miss out on so many events just because I can’t read signs and advertisements!
I was exploring near Okayama Station and I was really happy to see a drum performance! The guy in the middle was totally into it, they played the drums and had these arm movements that went along with it. It was really cool!
There were so many adorable kids dressed up in kimono and gold headpieces. Most of the kids didn’t look too thrilled to be carrying a huge gold headpiece but the parents were all happy about the cuteness factor.
Cute! A lot of the parents were snapping pics of their children in their cute outfits. 😉
I’m going to miss this part of Japan. It is really tiring to live here, but the culture here is fascinating and I always find something on the weekends to do.
