The weekend after the Shinmachi Fireworks, we went to my birthplace, Yokota Airbase in Fussa, Tokyo, for their annual friendship festival. We decided to take the train there so we could maybe spend some time in Tokyo after, but first we went strait to the festival.
Oh. My. Goodness it was crowded! I think this year broke all previous records! We got to hear English everywhere, ate American food, and had a good time, and then we met Katsu there (he works on the base), and he offered to drive us home along with Sayuka and Sakura, who we also met there. It was a great day, but I will be more prepared for the crowds next time, and also bring American money!
By the way, I didn’t take any pictures at all and left it all up to Kenji, so all of these are Kenji’s pictures! (He gets annoyed if I don’t give him credit ;D)
The train station… SO CROWDED!
It wasn’t a very long day, minus the train there and car ride back, but the FOOD! Oh man. Worth it.
