Almost Wordless Wednesday - Float Parade

This past weekend was the Misawa City Festival.  One of the events was a float parade.  Here are a handful of pictures (and video!) of some of the amazing floats that we saw.  


  1. Wow! Those are really cool. So many details!
    (Do you know if the floats tell folk tales? Or are they just decorations?)

    1. Yes! I loved how intricate many of them were! I have no idea what they are depicting; we were thinking they must be telling stories. At least a few seemed to show epic battles with dragons, horses, and warriors. I'm planning to ask some of the Japanese people that I've met here. :)

  2. My goodness, a glimpse of a really different culture. And the sound track! Brings back marching in the Tournament of Roses: the difficulty turning a corner! Ask what the rabbits mean... I keep seeing them.
