Aoi Matsuri procession! We ended up going back to Shimogamo Shrine to watch it because we didn’t want to hang around Kamigamo all day waiting for it. We got a good view!
June 15- Aoi Matsuri in Kyoto! And my mother came to visit, too!
Every Aoi Matsuri there is a grand procession of people in Heian ear dress from the Imperial Palace to Kamigamo Shrine. We went to Kamigamo Shrine early in the day because we did not plan this very well, but it was fun to see what was going on there hours before the procession arrived.
My mother has arrived in Kyoto to see me! Tomorrow we’ll have breakfast together and then go see the Aoi Matsuri procession. I can’t wait to spend time with her again.

I love it too but it’s so saaaad Q____Q It was one of my first Takarazuka DVDs but I hadly ever watch it because it makes me cry T____T But the revue is nice<3
It’s one of my favorites! I think all the Zuka opera adaptions have turned out well, really. It means they have a lot of music, instead of being boring and dialogue-heavy. And the costumes are great and the people are great and it’s wonderful.
Just very sad. The revue does make up for that, though, with all the happiness and joy they could ever throw at you.
I really love A Kiss to the Flames. The music is great, and it gives me a lot of feels.
Like, after all the gypsies are captured, and then they’re going to die and they know they’re going to die, and I get all choked up.
And then Tani starts screaming about Jesus.
Then I laugh a little.
And then they all die and I cry a lot.
先生: And now we’re going to practice breathing for loud voices while doing presentations! Everyone breathe in through your noses and into your stomachs!
Me: Uhh… *is wearing a corset*
先生: Let’s all practice saying the kana tables very clearly! And to help make your pronounciation very good, here are some Japanese tongue-twisters! Everyone read them three times.
Me: Moses supposes his toses are roses.
