Inuyama Matsuri at the World Expo

this year, Nagoya is the host for the Expo, formally known as the World's Fair. anyways, its a big deal ... a big big big deal, and i was lucky enough to have been on my old town's 'dashi' or float team for the town festival. they had asked me to do it last year, and ive been doing it since then.

for one weekend, all of the float or 'dashi' style festivals were invited to join the Expo, and bring their 'dashi's' to exhibit them and take part in a joint festival. so, our over 400 year old 'dashi' was disassembled and transporting, along with us, down to the festival at around 3am one saturday morning. we built the thing with our hands and partook in the international festivities.. which was mainly.... beer.
its was a great time, here are some pics from the weekend..



love will

So enjoyed the pics! Santa's wives and the S&M ladies are funny; they are also hot if I was thinking in a lesbo frame of mind. Glad to see you are posting again. :)
