Naoetsu Local Customs: 1 reviews and 1 photos
In Japan there are many summer festivals all over the country. Often they include fireworks displays. The one in Naoetsu consisted of large Yamakoshi floats with Taiko drums on them. The people wear Happi coats or Yukata and play instruments, dance around and generally yell a lot! I didn't join in but it was interesting to watch from the sidelines.
