Fujioka Matsuri! One of my absolutely favorite times of the year, I was especially looking forward to it since I had missed the year before to go home. Fujimatsu is split into two days, the first is the “mikoshi” which are carried by different teams, of which my employer, the BOE, is one. The second day is the “dashi”, which are big carts that are pulled and are full of drummers and flutists. We usually go to both days, the first to actually participate in the matsuri, the second to just enjoy it. Here are a ton of pictures and videos! (Most of these are Kenji’s pictures, as my camera had been dying a slow pixel death for awhile)

Fujimatsu is always exhausting, but tons of fun! I can’t wait for next year!
