In order not to delay any further, I'll just post the photos, and promise more to come: next weekend is O-Bon, the summer holiday during which the biggest festival in Tokushima (Awa O-Dori) takes over the city.
Until then, here are some snippets of my favourite time of year.
|The festival featured a "rent-a-grill" Japanese BBQ area...|
|.... which we utilised!|
|I love watching fireworks in Japan.|
|Thanks to David, now you can watch them, too!|
|In the crowd.|
|Our landlady, Midori-san.|
|It's oknomiyaki on a stick!!|
My favourite Japanese food has just become my favourite "fair food."
