Date 1, Tanabata Festival at Fukuoka Tower! (featuring Fukuoka Tower and "Rental Kimono Mine")

    Google Bookmarks
    I've just been to Fukuoka Tower! As I went on 7 July, the day of Japan's Tanabata Festival, I decided to wear something more traditional, so get changed into a yukata! As there are stores in Fukuoka that rent out yukata and also help you put them on properly, it doesn't matter if you don't own your own. We'll be introducing some places later on! There were Tanabata related events taking place at Fukuoka Tower, so it was really busy! Also, Fukuoka Tower is known as something of a mecca for lovers! Well, you're probably wondering exactly what kind of place it is, so let me show you around!

    Let's find a yukata to wear at the store "Rental Kimono Mine!"
