Japanese Autumn Festival - Takeda no Aki Matsuri

A Japanese Fall Festival in the small town of Takeda in Hyogo Prefecture has some really ornate floats that the townspeople parade through the streets which are all lit up at night. Some of the cushions have colorful depictions of Japanese history and legends. Takeda these days is famous for Takeda Castle dubbed the Machu Picchu of Japan for its misty morning appearance from autumn to spring.

Tokyo, Japan
Vagabond traveler currently hold up in Tokyo. I've done a far bit of traveling and had a few interesting adventures along the way. This blog is a chronicle of adventures past and present and those yet to come. I’ve been to about 30 countries though some no bigger than a kitchen table. I’ve run with the bulls of Pamplona, hiked the Inca Trail, got mugged in Mexico City, floated down the Nile in an old boat, climbed the Great Pyramid of Egypt, got ripped at Oktoberfest, and rode the notorious Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Party Train.
