Happy Halloween 2023! In memory of Professor Mark Hollstein and all of his monsters...

Since my own office door is occupied as we celebrate the Hanshin Tigers taking on the Orix Buffaloes in the Japan Series, I have annexed Mark's door for the annual Halloween decorations. Happy Halloween! Go Tigers!

「門真市地域伝統文化まつり」 Kadoma City Neighborhood Traditional Culture Festival

It is autumn so it is time to dust off the danjiri and celebrate fall festivals in many neighborhoods in Kadoma City, including my own, Shirogaki-cho. These local festivals will happen on October 14-15. In addition, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the founding of Kadoma, the city will have a big festival that includes a danjiri parade with at least 12 neighborhoods participating. The last time there was such an event was to celebrate the new emperor and the new Reiwa era.

Date: Saturday, November 4, 2023
Time: 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM
Suggested Viewing Spot: Keihan Furukawa Station
