bon odori ‘10: simplified

Tanglungs

dancing

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.
