I'm talking about a little before, I went a fire flower festival.
It was held in Jingu Stadium where professinal baseball game usually plays.

Because of the Touhoku earthquake, we Japanese hesitate to do fun things.
That is why many annual festivals are canceled.
I feel very sorry about that.

Talking back to the festival I went, it was OK, but not great.
The reason was that the festival was too commercialised.
The festival was separated into some parts, and each part was supported by sponsor company.
Before the part started, sponsor's CM was on the screen.
I thought the CMs interrupted the festival.

Anyway the fire flowers were beautiful, so I was somehow satisfied.
I hope Japan will get cheerful and many festivals will be held next year.
