Osu Kannon Summer Festival 2007

Osu Kannon had its summer festival over the weekend.A stage was put up in the open area near the temple and many taiko drum groups such as that pictured above competed.It must have been hot wearing the traditional dress and toiling away in the heat and humidity.
On Saturday and Sunday there was also a short obligatory fireworks display which is part and parcel of most summer festivals.
It was a very colorful affair with lots of bright yukatas being worn.
