Christmas Calendar: December 7th

Today I went with Yuma to Kobe after class for the so-called Luminaire Festival, which actually is an annual memorial to the losses due to the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.
Every year the arches has a new design, and I´m pretty sure there must be a lot of work involved in making and putting up these gates every year.. Really impressive:)!
There was a lot of people there, so I´m glad we didn´t go in the weekend.
This year the event last from the second till the thirteenth of December, so for those who are in the area I really recommend stoping by Kyoto to see this.
