Dragon Boat Festival pictures

Sticking one’s oar in.

I thought I’d try and find my way to the temple across the river even if there were no dragon boats. However, as you can see from the pictures, the dragon boats were out plying the river, sounding their drums and cymbals and setting off firecrackers.

The temple itself, as I found, appears to have some connection with Thailand, and is costing ¥300K (c. £20K) to refurbish. There were the large incense sticks burning outside, and all the temples along the river seem to be active. In fact, there are a few more of them than I realised, as well as one or two shrines of a sort.
