Dashi Matsuri prep work 2010

Once every two years Shibukawa holds a giant Dashi (float) parade. Last year I just sorta joined in. This year I am doing it right as a member of the Shimogo community. Besides I reckon it will be more rewarding if I put my sweat and effort into the preparation for the event.


workman more reward
making my mark old boxes
our hats obachan

I liked how all the men were outside doing physical labour while the women were inside doing more delicate work and cooking for the men. Traditions can be cool too :p


At the end of it all I felt like someone was going to bring out a crate of Carling Black Label.
