With Karl, I went to Utsubuki park at downtown Kurayoshi. A lot of people were there to enjoy cherry blossoms. We saw only three non Japanese. It seems that Misasa is more international than Kurayoshi. There are a lot of temporal junk-food shops. They are part of cherry-blossoms season.
Kurayoshi invited a hip-hop band to the festival because vocal guy was grown in Kurayoshi. It was a pity that their crappy music ruined the atmosphere.
In the evening, we went to a festival run by Misasa. Because the target of the festival is not local people but hot-sprint visitor, they are serious. Japanese drums, Japanese three-string guitar, and Japanese traditional songs. I like Misasa's festival more than Kurayoshi's.
