After seeing the kites, we walked back to the bus to go back to the station area.
We saw these people dancing on the way back to the bus.
Once we got back to the station, we saw many parade floats.
The floats had very detailed wood carvings on them.
Another of the floats.
One of the float attendants stopped me and had me put on these clothes for a picture.
They also gave me this cutely folded handkerchief!
After seeing the floats, we went up in the tower to see the city from up high!
We even got to see the shinkansen from above.
Later on, we found a good spot and waited for the parade to start.
Teddy bought us some delicious pizza from a truck.
The floats at night.
Another shot of the floats.
There was a float for every neighborhood. We didn’t stay to see them all, though.
Some girls sitting inside one of the floats.
One last float. After this, we RAN to the station to catch our train home. 😀
