Nice To Meet You:)
Hi! I created my blog to study English more;)
Yesterday, there was a little big Japanese shrine festival near my house:-)
Japanese shrine festival is one of the most traditional events. Japanese people wear yukata ( a kind of kimono) and go around many kinds of stalls such as *kakigori, *watagashi, *ringoame, *yakitori ( all Japanese delicious food). Also, we can play with *kuji and *kingyosukui while eating sweets. At the end of festival, we can see beautiful big fireworks in the sky.
It is very romantic so many people go there with their boyfriends, or girlfriends. It is very interesting!!
I went there yesterday with my friend. I wanted to wear yukata but I couldn't because it is difficult for me to put it on by myself, and I need some adults' help....but at the time, there was nobody. I wanted to wear yukata------!!!!!I plan to wear it at the next festival, August. I'm looking forward to wearing yukata even from now. I love yukata! I love Japanese culture:)
And, I wanted to play kingyosukui;-) kingyosukui is a game that people scoop a goldfish with special tool. If I scoop some goldfish, stall owner will give me them. It is one of the most popular and traditional games in Japan. But I haven't tried it ever before, so I wanted to try it! But it was a little expensive, 300yen. So I abandoned.
At the festival, I and my friend were suprised because people who attended the festival were young....Almost all people might be less than high school students....They looked happy and had a fun time with their boyfriends and girlfriends... I felt strong young powers from them.
Oh!No! I am already 19 years old...!! I was a little tired only to go around festival area^^
Anyway, Japanese shrine festival is very interesting and traditional event. I like it!!!
