      Here we are in December already. How fast time is flying!
                          This  year brought many natural disasters including an earthquake, typhoon and severely hot summer.Regretfully,
                                        these damaged many crops in farming areas. Thankfully, my area, Nara City was quite calm and there was little damage.
                                        Noyaki (open burning)was done after rice harvest this year too.

                                            On one day in October, there was an annual autumn festival held at the local shrine close to where I live.
                                            I appreciate seeing the happy children, enthusiastic youth and even the elders having fun at the festival.
                                            Together in the festival, and of course the festival programs performed at the shrine garden are too good to miss!

                                                                                                                                             The programs are here.

                                                                                                                             Fire dance

                                                                                                 hula dance

                                                                                                          Japanese Dram performance is highlight.  

                                                    These are the young men from a local youth group who support the event with their stall of BBQ sausages.

 Thank you for your support and allowing me to post of you!! 


                                                                                                 Have a wonderful day filled with smile!
