Experiencing the street parades in the afternoon of the second day of the Tenjin Festival was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Kiomi led us to a long covered mall and we found an excellent viewing point to see the parade. Be prepared for a warm humid day and the crowds, but they did not detract from this memorable spectacle. There are miles of booths with food, beverages and games. We had never seen fireworks that go on for an hour and a half just after sunset. The boat parades are terrific, especially in the cooler evening. With the crowds, the trick is getting a good viewing spot to see them from the shore or one of the bridges. Check the dates for all the summer festivals in all the major cities to make sure you do not inadvertently miss an exciting event like this.
