Nature Mirai Tanbo Festival
Call it whatever you like.
Put a bunch of kids and adults in a flooded field, it becomes a mud festival.
There were the usual festival booths with food and games.
In the shade of one building, plenty of arts and crafts booths were available.
Out for the fun in the sun is where I take the cameras.
Cold noodles, called Nagashi Somen, attracted quite a crowd.
The food flows down a bamboo pipe and whatever you can catch, you eat, for free.
A few of the more mature festival-goers, demonstrated how to do this race.
Then, there was no confusion, when it was the children's turn to race in the mud.
There was plenty of parent participation in the mud events.
Sometimes, I think adults have more fun than the children at these festivals.
