bon odori ‘10: simplified



Car parked miles away, long walk to stadium in the middle of factories area, milling in claustrophobic sweaty crowds, overpriced Isetan food, grass wet with melted ice, non-Japanese people in yukatas, familiar music and dancing in the centre of the stadium…same old, same old… <More pictures here>

I want to go to the Penang one next year, I heard that there were fireworks too!

Oh and join Taylor’s Book Club here!

6 things to say:

my gf was at the bon odori celebration at penang... there's fireworks, but she said the whole affair's deadly boring :|

she's more a korea-phile anyway

Wow, really simplified but I kinda like the second picture (:

I would go Bon Odori just for a couple photos of pretty girls and go back home, which I did. It helps to have a media pass too, just to avoid the sweaty and smelly crowd.
