Flew up to Kyushu to photograph the Karatsu Kunchi Festival. The main events took place on Sunday and Monday, but as the rain poured down, the Sunday procession was a little waterlogged. The kids were all looking a little glum. The adults however had a special remedy. Which appeared to be encouraged by the local constabulary. And so with heads held high, the floats were dragged through the city. And some people even managed a smile.
