After spending the entire morning, afternoon and evening inside reading, watching Beverly Hills 90210 (the older years), and making egg rolls I needed a treat before we started our bedtime movie, "The Watchmen". So Peter walked me to Circle K, but on our way we were stopped by a big party in the streets of Sakaide of all places. It was wild! Drums were pounding, people were dancing, and of course venders were selling a bunch of crap. If Japan has one thing goign for it it's the great sense of communal unity, there is always a party.
Here is Peter pre-party making delicious egg rolls.
Thank goodness I had already had dinner:( Squid on a stick anyone? I'll take a hot dog please!
The kids catch eels in a shallow tank with a hook on a stick. One kid just shoved his hook through its gills. I got real pukey! Eels kinda scare me too, they are very suspicious looking.
There were about 10 of these float-like things lined up next to each other. I think it was some sort of float battle.
Although our day inside was amazing, getting out is always nice too.
