Children Of the Yoshiwara Gionsai
I don’t know what it is about the people of Shizuoka, but they come out really well in photos, especially the kids. I took these snapshots of local children at the amazing Yoshiwara Gionsai (吉原祇園祭), the main festival (I think!) of the the Yoshiwara district in Fuji City, just to the south of Mount Fuji. I’ve said it before but Japanese kids really are beautiful, and the older ones have great taste in headwear as well! Enjoy!
