I went to Yamakasa festival this morning. It was a lot of fun!!
The festival involves 7 nagare – each group works together to carry (while running) a 1-ton float. There is also a final float, much larger that is 2-tons.
The video above is the 7th and final float. Well, it was going to but I can’t upload video without paying, so now it’s a photo of one of the floats. Today was a lot of fun, but now I’m exhausted.
I’m sure the participants are too. But for them, participating in the festival is a good reason to take a day off. Lucky.
