Foreign Friday

Autumn Festival ornate float
Misawa, Japan
Autumn 1979


  1. I love these floats - so colorful and cheerful. Really enjoy your Foreign Friday posts!

  2. I ♥ the dragons!

    I looked at the photo and thought --- oh, look at the hair. Must be the 80s. I was *almost* right.

  3. Fabulous photo! The dragons just made me go WOW!

  4. Does any other culture celebrate dragons so?
    we have Town Lake geneva US snowsculpting competition underway . We are going tomorrow with my niece and great nieces!

  5. That is a beautiful float, but I don't think the dragons are happy about being in the parade. I love that in Japan they seem to celebrate anything and everything.

  6. Love this photo! Our son has been able to take part in many parades in Aomori. He plays the drums and the wooden flute. Thank you for sharing with us.

  7. Cool. Dragons in the Eastern tradition are always good and/or bring good luck. In the Western tradition are dangerous. But, then, where does Pete's Dragon come in?
