The train ride to Narita is pretty long, taking three hours from Sano. That includes transit time and wait time, although we were pretty efficient with our transfers. The day's events included various concerts and performances all around the festival area as well as an afternoon street parade featuring taiko bands from all over Japan. I suppose you can use your favorite search engine to find out lots more about it, and I don't want to type too much more because I have to upload a ton of pictures. That's what the people want anyway. Shut up and show us the story.
Below are a handful of my shots from Sunday. These were taken with my new Sony A6000 camera, since the lens to my other camera broke a while ago. I'm still figuring out its capabilities, but I'm pretty satisfied with the shots I got. Enjoy.
