The past few days have rocked for me! The Obon festivities were so much fun, I am glad I get to see them one more time before I leave Japan. I have a ton to type and a few pics to post as well but I am tired at the moment and want to get some sleep.
I may write an entry tomorrow describing everything but if I were going to guess it will probably be the day after that before I get around to it. Tomorrow, I am going out of town to sub for a class and I won't be getting back until later in the evening. When I do make the all encompassing Obon entry, expect pics of candle lit lanterns floating down a river, fireworks, the hillside of Kyoto aflame with Kanji characters burning on the slopes, and my trip to a very cool shrine to the homeless and vagrants of Kyoto. Its been a good past few days I must say.
But for now, I need sleep and when I do post, it will be a long and detailed entry. This was easily some of the most fun days I have had since coming to Japan and I want to share everything with everyone.
Oh, one more thing, I have been getting a few questions from people that are thinking about coming to Japan and teaching with Peppy Kids Club. If you have questions regarding anything about that, just leave a comment on this post. The earlier post that people have been commenting on is getting pretty crowded with comments and its further down on the list of posts now. I like answering the questions so do not hesitate in asking them, just leave comments on the most current post that I have made on here. That way they are easier for me to see.
