信玄公祭り 第42回 poster

There are a lot of really cool festivals in Japan. However, the one that is nearest and dearest to my heart is the Shingen-Ko Matsuri (信玄公祭り), which takes place in Kofu every spring. Perhaps it’s because Kofu is the first place I lived in Japan. In any event, I was there for the 17th and 29th renditions of the festival. I was many months too late to catch the 42nd version, advertised in today’s photo. The 48th edition will happen next year.

Yamanashi Prefecture is famous for its grapes. While waiting for a bus to take me from the Shosenkyo Bus Stop back to central Kofu, I shot this nearby vineyard. In Japan it isn’t uncommon to see grapes wrapped on the vine. I’ve never seen this in the USA or anywhere else.

Next week we are off to Oahu. While you can find Marugame Udon shops all over Japan, you have to go to Hawaii to eat such noodles in the USA. Can’t wait!

Pi-ka-chu?

The Miyazawa family chooses Pikachu. I took this photo seven years ago this month on my way up Takeda Dori during the Shingen-ko Festival (信玄公祭り).
