So the festival was amazing. After we carried the Mikoshi, they gave us free beer at what I’m guessing was the Toshima community center.
A bunch of folks from Sakura went, and after the official festivities were concluded, our hosts from the hotel took the group out to karaoke. So: two frenchmen, two English women, the two Japanese girls from the hotel, and a Thai girl – we had an amazing time. And liquor is cheaper than beer, by the way.
We kept up with our hosts pretty easily, being generally larger than the average Japanese twenty-something girl, and are pleasantly intoxicated. Now Matt wants to find an arcade.
Sleep will come very easy when we finally get to it, lol. Good night, Japan.
What do you think?
