Summer in Sendai: Festivals!

Summer was unusually hot in Sendai this year. I think it got up to 36/37 C, which is actually only about 98 in Fahrenheit, but when combined with the humidity here... Let's just say I didn't even know it was possible for me to sweat that much. My last post came to you from rainy season, which I heard a lot about before coming, but it turned out to be what most Portlanders would consider a pretty normal June.

So what did I do this summer? Well mostly I worked, but in addition to that I went to a lot of festivals, including the very cool Samurai horse-riding festival in Fukushima prefecture (just south of my prefecture, Miyagi).
