The Nebuta Festival 2012

It is a spectacle of summer.  The Nebuta Festival in Aomori, one of the most major festivals in Japan, took place from August 3 to 7 (same dates every year.) 
Nebuta, which are huge paper lanterns, parade through the town at night along the lively rhythm of drums and the chants of participants.  The excellent workmanship of each nebuta is so impressive.  IT IS ART!

I received pleasant energies generated in the festival by all the participants and spectators.
