There will be a festival named Arimatsu Shibori Matsuri in Arimatsu, Midori-ku, Nagoya on June 7 and 8. Recently many people have visited to my blog looking for information of the festival. Since I wrote about it last June and September, if you retrieve the festival with the search engine, this page’s title also comes up as a result.
That’s why I paste the information of guide in English tour at the festival below. I’m going to join in the tour. I may be able to see you there!
