Saturday evening I went to the fireworks at Ochiai Koen in Kasugai City (thanks to the advice from one of my best students ( 広美さん、ありがとうございます。 ) The festival means something like “the people’s enjoying the cool of the evening”, and I’m not exactly sure of the correct reading, so I need a little help on that. Anyways, the weather was perfect - about 29 degrees celsius but not too humid, and no bugs. I have nothing to complain about. I took a lot of pictures, including three movies (warning, these are very long, so be careful if you’re on dialup). I look forward to several more fireworks celebrations this summer.
