I’ve bought my tickets to attend an annual local festival this weekend called Live Earth. It will be my fifth time to go and with a fine and sunny day forecasted I can’t wait to chill out under the sun with my family and friends.
The name of the event and what it involves is clear- live music with an earth-loving theme. The festival highlights the importance of resources by encouraging people to bring their own tableware and cutlery. If you happen to forget to bring them on the day, you can rent them there for a hundred yen.
I love wondering around, bumping into people I haven’t seen in ages and checking out the various stalls that sell food, drinks, and clothing. There are other tents offering massages, yoga classes and even activities for children. Every year I am entertained by the organic and hippy sounds of Dewachen – most definitely my favorite performance throughout the day mainly because of the didgeridoo playing.
You don’t need to be a tree-hugger to go and it’s no Fuji Rock, but it has a great vibe. I also appreciate the warm and welcoming atmosphere and the people there that support and love Mother Nature.
