A nous le Japon!

Kobe Matsuri

ou le festival de Kobe. Il  a ete creee en 1971 a l’initiative d’un effort pour reunir les gens de laville. Cette annee, on y vu entre autre beaucoup de groupes de fanfares avec leurs uniformes, beaucoup de groupes de samba qui sont apparement tres a la mode ici! et bien sur des danses plus traditionnels. Bien sur ca ne vaut pas le carnaval de SF que nous avons vu l’annee derniere mais c’etait assez interressant, les gens adorent la musique et la danse ici aussi.

or Kobe Festival. It was started in 1971 as an effort to bring people together for an afternoon. This year, we saw lots of bands in their very strict uniforms, lots of samba groups (it’s apparently very popular) and also some traditional dance performances. Of course, there are no comparisons with the SF carnival we saw last year but it’s worth going just to enjoy the music and the dance.
