Dontaku Matsuri

Yesterday, we went to the Dontaku Matsuri, one of the biggest festivals in Japan.
The word Dontaku comes actually from the Dutch word "Zondag", which means "Sunday".

There are a lot of colorful parades with people wearing fancy costumes.
Everybody can take part and the atmosphere is really great.

Here, you see the Mascot of "Fukuya", which is a famous Mentaiko shop here.

Before the parade ended, we went to "Cotton fields" a great beer restaurant.

They have beer from all over the world...

... and the best spear-ribs.

After the parade, the festival is split up in several locations all over the city and people continue to sing and to dance. We had so much fun and I want to go there again next year.
