Photo Essay: Another Dam Festival in Okinawa, Japan
Not complaining, it wasn't a damn festival I went to yesterday. It was a DAM FESTIVAL, the Kanna Dam Matsuri, just a twenty minute drive from where I live in Okinawa, Japan.
NOTE TO LOCAL READERS: DIRECTIONS TO THE BELLYBUTTON MAY BE FOUND HERE
Here's a photo of some characters I've never seen before.
They are like some kind of Super Heros.
Ya'll know, I research things thoroughly before posting them online most of the time.
So, I snapped a copy of this on my cell phone and ran across the street.
Two older-than-me grannies said this was Ultraman characters.
Lucky for me, my granddaughter stopped by with a little brother and saw me doing a blog.
Those grannies are nuts. These characters ain't Ultramen !
Ladies, Gentlemen and all others, let me introduce you to some Okinawan Superheroes.
Those Grandkids of mine are experts on these sort of things.
We'll have to see what it takes to get them Wikipedia qualified, someday.
Of course, I had to spoil them, a little bit, and it cost me $25 or so but, that's life.
Right now I'm drying, cleaning and charging up the cameras for the next damn festival.
This one isn't at a dam.
It's a tug-o-war.
Wait'll the wife finds out I invited all the grandkids to join us at this little-known festival tonight.
See, she kind of enjoys shooting that Canon G12 I'll probably never see again.
When she finds out I'm packing about 6 more passengers in the car to go to the festival....
...she'll probably say something like, "DAMMIT" !
