Saturday’s Matsuri (festival)

October 14th, 2003 by Jeff Leave a reply »

I went to a festival this past Saturday, held downtown. There were people dancing on a stage, people playing music, and a lot of people selling food.

Here’s a video of some of the vendors and things for sale at the festival. You should be able to hear people shouting “Irasshaimasse~~!!!” which roughly translated means “Welcome to my shop!” but in this case, it’s more like, “Look at me, I’m selling stuff!”

Please note that you will need the Divx 5 codec for Windows or for Macintosh to play the video. If you’re only getting sound, you need to download and install this file.

    Less downtown! More ENGRISH!
