Season of Dragon Boat Races has Begun

Monday, April 22, 2013


Festival season is starting on Oki and lasts all through the summer.  I love this time of year out here!
Before we know it, we'll be going to sleep to the sound of sanshin {it's like a lute or banjo}, taiko drums and fireworks like we have the past two summers. 
Dragon boat races happen all over the island, and are locally believed to provide good fishing and safe seas for the fishing communities. You can see last year's festival here.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
