It's Silver Week in Japan and this Eisa  Matsuri got the festivities off to a great start.

There are always plenty of activities for children, such as, flying airplanes.

Some of the younger generation, would rather dance Eisa with the adults.

Senior citizens danced in a circle to some classic Ryukyu music.

The martial arts demonstration always gets plenty of attention.

Before the fireworks display in the evening, it started pouring down rain.
