Summer time in Japan means festivals, lots and lots of festivals. Here is Hubs sister Hiromi with cousins Kazu and Ayano warming up to play the Japanese base drum or taiko.
Giving Mommy a little love. Love the way he has to grab you by the face.

Hiromi's son Eito trying to figure the whole drumming thing out.
The noise, the heat, the lights. It was all too much for Sophie. She slept most of the time we were there.

I am sure this is our first of many festivals. Look for more pictures in the future.
