The town where I have recently moved in has a cozy shopping street. They had the summer festival today, so I hanged out there. I cannot recall when I walked around such a festival in town last time. I have memories of enjoying a festival at a shrine or a station square in the town every summer when I was in school.
I like the atmosphere of the festival. And this one is not so big, but enough to feel the vibrant community. I feel comfortable with living in this town so far.
