Report on Autumn Festival at Raijinsama

I was able to make it to the festival at Raijinsama today and I was very happy that I did. Here are some pictures and videos from my day.

The Chuo Hayashikai taiko group (featured in the videos below) will be performing at midnight on December 31st (to herald in the new year) at Raijinsama and also on January 1, 2, and 3 at the new “iias” mall near Kenkyu Gakuen Station. (I’m not sure of the times of those performances yet.)
