Nearing the festival

The light blue building is the HakataMinami Shinkansen Station building, our destination for today's little trip. If you look carefully, you can see that on the open area on the second floor there are some tents. These are part of the Nakabaru Summer Festival. Nakabaru is the name of the area that we live in. It is similar to a ward in the US, just a political designation of part of the town. The population of Nakagawa Town in slightly  over 50,000 so the number of people living in Nakabaru is probably just a couple of thousand. My daughter and her six year old daughter are visiting us so we are taking them to the festival. I was sick last year so we did not go, thus, we really to not know what to expect.
