To see the festival in this very hot weather, it was necessary to fill up our stomach with food otherwise we would faint.
We had late lunch at “Seiryu” a Showa retro style Chinise restaurant.

We went through Crea-mall Shopping Arcade and finally got to Hon-Kawagoe Station.
So called “Kawagoe Yukari no Jidai Gyoretsu”, people dressed in Samurai costumes walked around towns in alignment.

Samurais with Japanese rifles

On top of the Samurai’s line, there were Samurais with Japanese rifles. With the order of the top commandar, “Dooon” shot the matchlock guns.
Loud cheers rose from the audiences each time there was a thunder of the shots.
