父が来日 （その１） Dad in Japan (Part 1)
Dad arrived in Japan at 9 am on Oct 10th. I went by car to pick him up. It's about 200 km one way to Kansai Airport. Dad wants to do some mountain biking in Japan, but since he had hardly slept for 2 days, is really tired from the flight, so in the mean time, we will do some other things.
宮津寺町を竹やペットボトル、LEDなどの約１万個の手作り灯籠でライトアップ。 郷土芸能や演奏会などの催しを楽しみながら散策し、 市街地の歴史文化に触れていただく市民参加型の手作りイベントです。
About 10,000 homemade lanterns made from bamboo, plastic bottles, LED lights etc light up the temple town of Miyazu. You can enjoy artists performing in the temple grounds while strolling around the area and touch upon the history and culture of the area.
An adorable event that has continued since the early Edo Period (335 years)
The baby battles with an invisible god doing sumo and loses. This is a charming event where the baby receives good health when their buttocks lands on the sacred sand of the sumo ring.
In the afternoon we went browsing in a big electronics shop, hardware shop and shopping center. Then we went to a person's house who previously had a home stay at dad's place. They treat us to sukiyaki. It was delicious. We had a good time there.
The next day we went to an amazing place in the mountains. Please look forward to it.
