The bus left Nagoya Station at seven in the morning. Our bus didn’t get stuck in traffic and arrived at Hamamatsu around nine o’clock. As we were getting nearer the base, we were able to see planes in the sky above us, and the passengers’ feelings were uplifting.
At the festival place, we were very surprised at the numbers of stalls. I guess there were more than a hundred stalls in narrow approaches.
Half of them were food stalls, and they were selling Japanese light meal or snacks such as yakisoba, or flied noodle, or takoyaki, or octopus dumpling ball, and the half rest were selling military goods such as camouflage-printed wears and dog tags. And there many men were snatching up what they had been looking for.
Blue Impulse is the aerobatic demonstration team of Japan Air Self-Defense Force formed in 1960. It’s said that the pilots of Blue Impulse are elite. Admittedly we really enjoyed seeing their breathtaking performances.
I wish the beautiful planes and the pilots’ skills won’t be used for wars…
