All dressed up with nowhere to go

Happi

Actually, I have got somewhere to go, I just can't go.

It's matsuri season here in Japan - one of my favourite times of the year - and I've been invited to help lug the mikoshi from our local shrine around. I was really looking forward to it, especially having been given my happi yesterday (pictured above), but I can't really afford the time now that our baby is here.

It's not like it would take me all weekend, but it will inevitably lead to copious amounts of beer - which I was rather looking forward to - and I need to be semi-conscious to take care of my son(s).

Oh well, maybe next year. Hopefully I'll be able to make it to the festival for refreshments on Saturday night.
