Today, we biked down to Fushimi, had lunch, hung out, and watched the Hirokoji Summer Festival.
We got the soy karaage rice bowl with kabocha soup at Love Pacific Cafe.
On our way to karaoke, we saw this… Interesting ball game. Still not sure what it is…
On our way back to our bikes, we came upon this cool parade.
It turns out it was the Hirokoji Summer Festival.
I was really amused by this mikoshi being pulled by a flatbed truck.
There were many dancers following the mikoshi.
We got to see cool floats and performances from other prefectures. This is from Aomori.
Another cool float with a man and a white dragon.
Teddy felt like this dance would lead to nothing other than thighs filled with pain the next day. I have to agree.
Nagoya is a special city that feels no need to stop traffic that crosses parade routes. So here are the participants waiting for the light to change so the parade can continue. LOL.
Unfortunately, watching this parade resulted in us getting absolutely drenched cause it started raining and we had biked to Fushimi. 😀
