Some experiments with the light today and a welcoming party in the evening.
It is very interesting to be in the community in Mino learning about their custom and history.
They told me about paper makers, merchants and a blush maker as well as about Mino festival in April. The festival has a long history and people go around the town carrying miniature shrines which were decorated with hundreds of paper flowers. I could see everyone who talks about the festival seems to be so happy to be a part of it. I would love to see it hopefully next year.
You can see the pics of the festival here.
