Pre-Yamakasa, around town

Fukuoka was gearing up for the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival, one of the three biggest festivals in the city. It technically started on the 1st of July, but the big event was the morning of the 15th. Pictures of that to come in the next post.
I love this poster for "Inception" because the Japanese running down the left of it says "DiCaprio will invade your mind." Hahaha. Of course they had one for Ken Watanabe too.
A decorative float that would be paraded around town at the end of the culminating event on the morning of the 15th.
Since this one is tall and quite elaborate, they can't run with it really quickly the way they do with the others. Stay tuned for pictures of the big Yamakasa event!
