Here is a very large Taiko drum. It’s 53 years old and the Japanese people participating in the Matsuri pull it around town in front of the Shrine we carry.
All the guys talked about was the beer party we will have after!
The Kanji you see says our Town’s name.
Once every two months we put our old newspapers in front of the house for pick up.
A volunteer from our community picks the papers up and sells them. That money goes to the town parties like Matsuri.
In the summer we had a BBQ in the country side on someone’s farm and it was all paid for by the town. Of course there was lots of beer.
