Nagoya Castle Summer Festival: Bon Odori
Kakigouri machine (shaved ice)
Matcha flavored kakigouri and takoyaki!
Anyone interested in joining in, can!
The lanterns on the stage.
It's not a summer festival without beer!
This was the festival at Nagoya Castle. The festival happens every year in August! If you wear a Yukata they will take a hundred yen off from the entrance fee. It's not as crowded as the Minato-ku Fireworks festival so you can enjoy the atmosphere a bit more. Hopefully, you can go next year!
