Nakatsu Gion Matsuri - Nakatsu Jinja Sunday night

A Gion Kuruma being pulled into the shrine.

Matsuri essentials - kakigori and karaage (shaved ice and fried chicken)


We went after the party with the last few guests left, Kate and Hannah. Kate helped us with our obis. These are not the best photos, but Amy is wearing her other yukata, which is very pretty.
Erica is conveniently showing you how wide her left hand spreads - that's it folks, not a mm more!














Below, the kuruma being pulled around the shrine in a big circle.

looks very cool at night! but...since we didn't get home until 10 or 10:30, it's best that we left when we did!
