The title I gave this photo refers to the boy's expression, not my feelings on festivals, I assure you. Japanese festivals are always a joy to experience and take photos of. For one thing, it is one of the few times people wear more traditional clothes. Also, the atmosphere is always fun: everyone is having a great time, there is Japanese junk food† everywhere, the air is full of music and laughter. I wish they were more often!
