Two weeks ago, on August 1st, my family went to the 36th annual Isuzu Fujisawa Festival at the Isuzu truck factory in Fujisawa. Since it was only 20 minutes away from us on foot, it was a pretty easy decision to go to it.
The festival featured a lot of food, taiko drums, singing, festival games, mikoshi (portable shrine), and fireworks. As you’ll see later in the video below, we didn’t stay for the fireworks, but we did see some. The video features mostly the taiko performance, which is nice to watch. The girl dancing to the taiko music is my daughter. It was her first time seeing anything like this, and she really loved it.
If you’ve watched the video already, you’ll notice that we had a thunderstorm. It was actually quite intense with a lot of lightning. But I love a good thunderstorm.
