There's a lot I need to catch you up on, but not enough time. So in the meantime, enjoy these pics from a little festival held in my town a few weeks ago. One of my Japanese teachers is a fire performance artist and he invited me and my fellow ALTs to come watch.
I was also lucky to run into some of my students dressed up for the festivities. Aren't they adorable?
For now, I gotta hit the hay!
