Hanno-matsuri parade is a place for the whole family. Took this photo during a rest stop of the parade. These little girls were so cute and so tired. The crowd loved them because you can see the future of Japan in their adorable little faces. It’s comforting for me to see the continuation of tradition and history in the face of ultra-modernization. I come from a country where unique cultures are only to be celebrated as long as they are not our own. Sad.
