Nakanoshima Matsuri 2011
During the Golden Week holidays, attending the Nakanoshima Festival in Osaka has become an annual event for me. It is a gathering of people of all kinds devoted to various social causes and NPOs, performances, cosplay, flea markets and of course good food and drink. There are various groups of deaf people as well, including NPO Deaf Support Osaka. Not only is it a great celebration and a time to meet friends, but a great opportunity for photography. This year was the 40th Anniversary of the event, and despite being slightly subdued in honor of the earthquake/tsunami/Fukushima victims, it was still a lot of fun.
