The cutest ladies at the festival? Definitely the most serious about it!
I finally went to watch the Shimada Obi Festival today where I took literally hundred of pictures and have to divide this report on of the strangest/unusual festivals in Japan into many parts!
This report is about the faces of some ladiesI met on purpose or by chance to give a good idea of what to expect at a Japanese Festival!
Well, no world is perfect….
The same standing. Brrrrr…….
Always on the phone, even in the company of a boyfriend!
These two ladies selling at a food stand were certainly having a good time!
The color of their hair is a sign of their seriousness!
We’ll see many more of these with such grand hairstyles!
“Fans” with fans waiting for the clash of chariots!
Parade dancers having a break.
Looking after the younger generation.
It was a very hot and dry day. Every respite was welcome!
Heads up! Time is coming soon to dance again!
My favorite picture!
Here they come!
I know, I know! I do like her!
A bodyline to make a lot of foreign tourists jealous!
It all might looks eanough but I can assure you all this dancing was extremely strenuous!
I’m so bleeding tired…..
Part 4 is about the KIDS!
