It's summer, which means it's festival season, so what better way to close out the school year than the Kurihama Perry Festival?
Kurihama is where Matthew C. Perry landed in order to begin the first negotiations for the opening of Japan. The Kurihama Perry Festival commemorates that landing. Since Kurihama is in Yokosuka, it wasn't that unusual to see members of the US military walking around the festival.
|Yakitori! The perfect festival food.|
|So many food and game stalls!|
|Kenia and me!|
|I'm very excited about this churro. It's covered in cocoa powder. It's exciting.|
