Marumori Lantern Festival

Last night we went to Marumori, which is quite close to Kakuda, to the lantern festival. It was really quite beautiful seeing hundreds of paper lanterns hanging everywhere around this old soy sauce merchant’s house. I thought I would share some really nice photos I took.

The grounds were absolutely packed with people. All desperately trying to take photos with their crappy cell phone cameras or their tiny point and shoot cameras. Flashes were going off everywhere. Don’t they realize using the flash will make the picture look terrible? Don’t they realize they’re wasting their time and ruining the atmosphere?
