Halloween and Obata Ryokuchi Koen

After two weeks silence, I am back. I had an unfortunate slip down the steps at school, which resulted in a lot of lazing around the house. (It DID at least encourage my kids to hold the handrail on the stairs, so there’s that!!) I’m now at about 80%, so back to the adventures!

Honensai (NSFW)

This weekend we headed out to Komaki, a small town north of Nagoya, to see Honensai. Honensai is a festival held every year on March 15th to encourage fertile crop growth. It features a giant, 2 meter penis float. You absolutely read that correctly. Behind the cut there are some pictures that are not safe for work, and depending on your personal philosophy, may not be suitable for children (though there were many children at the festival!)
