Held at the Japanese Primary School in Changi, Singapore. There were a lot of people queuing up at the venue well before the event began. And even before i joined the queue for the rental of the yukata, they told us that it was sold out.
Entrance fee: $2
I rather enjoyed the campus with its large field and quaint buildings, it took me away from where i thought i was. The crowd and heat did get a little overwhelming as time passed though. Queue’s were practically everywhere; to enter, to get food, to play games, to use the restroom. It made me feel a tad dizzy.
But the spirit was so vibrant. Everyone was into the mood of celebrating the summer, determined not to let the heat get to them. People dressed up in traditional Japanese costumes, ate Japanese food, watched Japanese performances. It was all good fun.
