Looking Back- The Last of the Summer Festivals

It’s looking back a bit now, as the summer is well and truly over right now, but I didn’t let it end without going to a couple of festivals first.  First off was a mysterious fire-lit festival in Tokyo that I went to with my Australian friend Sam. There was some kind of Noh dancing which, as it so often does, involved a god stealing someone’s sake flask, or perhaps someone stealing a god’s sake. What I liked was the mysterious tone and rhythm of the music, which together with the flickering torches gave quite a mystical feeling to the proceedings. What was also nice was being able to hang candle-lit lanterns over the temple pond. I’m not sure if it was intended, but I wrote a wish along with mine. You can see more here.
