After church today, everyone just mostly lazed around for awhile, until around three pm for the girls. We started getting ready for the festival that we were leaving for at six by doing our hair and taking an hour (I think…) to figure out how to put on our yukata. As soon as we were done, we all grabbed our wallets and headed to the bus stop to wait for our bus.
When we arrived at the matsuri, it was packed with people everywhere. There were some floats with lanterns that some people were in them playing traditional music. There were food and game stands lining the streets everywhere. We got free time for a bit once we were in the matsuri, so we all went off in groups until it was time to meet up to head back home.
As my group started heading for our bus stop, we got a message from the senseis saying to meet up somewhere else because the bus we were supposed to go on was taking a different route. Then the same thing happened again after that. My group finally ended up running into Bellini Sensei and her daughter, so we followed her all the way to the bus stop that was actually running its normal stops even though the festival was occurring, were we met up with Fullmer Sensei. Some of the kids weren't with us, but luckily caught one of the next buses and arrived home shortly afterwards.
It was a very fun, slightly stressful and tiring evening for us all. Once we got into our house, we all went to bed to get ready for our journey to Gifu.
