The Kobe Festival was going on!
It is usually held in June, but it was canceled this year because of the Swine Flu…
You can see what a big deal Swine Flu was in Kobe!!!
This is one of the main streets in Kobe.
They closed it off from traffic for this festival!
Look who I saw near one of them!!!
Don’t know who he is?
He’s a famous character in Japanese children’s books!
Here are a bunch of Non-tan books on display!!
I also saw Yasuo Tanaka as well (he’s a famous Japanese politician).
He’s the guy with the necktie in the middle!
Oh and why is he in long sleeves even though it’s super hot???
Because it isn’t “proper” for Japanese politicians to wear short sleeves, apparently!
I was more excited to see Non-tan! LOL!
Annnndddd on to dinner!
Actually we ate everything so quickly that I only took a few pictures!
We went to a yummy Korean food place…
It was this hole-in-the-wall place, but soooo yummy!!!
But I totally forgot to take pictures!!!
We finished it off with a trip to Starbucks!
Here’s my Lemon Green Tea Frappuccino!!
