Mitsuwa Summer Festival! :: Wednesday, August 10, 2011


I can't believe it's been so long since I last wrote!

This last weekend I went back up to Chicago for the Mitsuwa Summer Festival. I had such a blast and got to meet back up with some of the Chicago gals!


I headed up there after work on Thursday. That night, Evil and I didn't really do much. Ate dinner and pie, and just generally hung out.

On Friday, we had BIG plans! We decided we would go swimming, and then we would head out to King Sauna and Spa.

Off to the pool!

I haven't been swimming since I was last in New Orleans! And I finally got to wear my new bathing suit!!
We mostly laid in the lazy river the whole time. Even though we were at the pool for hours, I still didn't manage to get a tan! But, I do have a few more freckles than I did before.

After swimming, we rested for awhile, then headed almost an hour away to King Spa and Sauna. This place is VERY similar to Onsen in Japan! It is a Korean spa with a small portion of hot and cold baths, and then TONS of different saunas. We spent HOURS UPON HOURS here! We got there around 7pm, and then didn't leave until well after 11pm. It was a great refreshing experience.
We didn't take many pictures that day though.


Saturday was the day of the festival. Evil and I met Nikki and Krystal at the Motel 6 that Nikki was staying in for the weekend so that we could all get ready together. I lent Krystal my spare yukata to wear as well.

The 3 of us in Yukata!

It was so hot and humid, my hair fell down almost immediately.

And, My friend Rumi and I! I haven't actually seen Rumi since 2007! She was my very first friend in college.

Waiting in line for some foood.

This is my favorite Bon Odori teacher. She rocks my socks! Every year I try to follow her during the dancing.


After the summer festival was over at 9pm, we headed over to the hotel room to change for CLUBBING NIGHT!!!!

The club was so full of creepers that night! (,,#゚Д゚)
I really wish my phone took better pictures!



I redid my nails today. First try with zebra print!

Oh my gosh! How much fun did you have, huh! XDD I'm so jealous of your fun get together! I love all of the yukatas you gals wore---I left mine in Japan on accident! ; o ; So I need to buy another one, hopefully when AEON is having their awesome 3000yen sale! ^^;;;

I love Aeon's sales! I bet you'll be able to get a really really cute one at that! I have 2 yukatas.... but I really want a red one.. so I'm probably going to end up buying a third one!
I'm so bad!

Thank you!
It's good to have friends to go with, but unfortunately they all live 4 hours from where I live! I only get to see them on special occasions!
