Summer in Little Tokyo

Traditional NEBUTA float

This year’s Nisei Week parade was really special here in Los Angeles. Not only was there the usual dance groups from Japan and the local taiko groups but the featured float was a traditional from Japan, known as NEBUTA. Painstakingly crafted and painted by artisans from Aomori prefecture, this beautifully decorated float was lit from inside and really captivated us all ! (NOTE: Nisei Week is held annually in August here in LA.)
