Under the Bridge

So we are in Aka at exactly the right time for lo Saturday night is Matsuri night. The big summer festival is held under the bridge. It is a bit like Glynebourne. Everyone sits out on the lawn having an evening picnic before the show starts.


Our party. We talk opera


A Hoopoe comes to play


The most gracious women in the world drinking beer ferociously

There is a series of local acts. It is incredible fun.


Under the bridge downtown


The kids dance

I usually try to slip out the back if communal dancing is suggested but in Aka the whole village got up to dance and suddenly Jeremy and I found ourselves doing the same thing.


Under the bridge downtown, I gave my life away


The Red Hot Chili Peppers got their inspiration from the Aka Matsuri. This is an opera in 3 acts.
