Summers in Japan are hot and sticky but the festivals are warm and friendly,and the old merchant town of Sawara seems to have been made for matsuri.            The townsfolk put all their hearts into making it a real celebration of their town not once, but twice, in July and again in October.

Here are some photos I took at the July Matsuri.

In the hot afternoon sun….

In the sultry night air…
