New camera

These are the first shots with our new Nikon! As much as I like shooting with film, the boxes of negatives were getting too much so finally switched to digital.

It’s summer here and time for festivals. I love the local festivals here. It’s nice that there are still events that pull the local community together. This was the one in Kawasaki city:

Lanterns light the way:

Along with food stalls:

Octopus!

Buying mochi:

The festivals are usually centred around temples:

Enjoy the Summer 🙂

  1. I too love seeking out local matsuri. I did deliberately seek out the Takayama Autumn Festival, but others were about being in the right place at the right time. Such as walking down a laneway and spotting a ‘mikoshi’ being prepared for the Shitaya Matsuri recently in Ueno.
