Matsuri, Nakameguro Summer Festival

Matsuri is the Japanese word for festival. Matsuri are the occasion to sample delicious Japanese street food and alcohol as well as to witness Japanese traditional arts performed in the streets, most often including dances and drum performances. These photos were taken during the Nakameguro Summer Festival, a local festival that occurs every year in early August 2014 in the vicinity to the Nakameguro station.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
