Aomori Nebuta festival (preparation for the night parade)/Фестиваль Небута в Аомори (подготовка к вечернему параду)

These pictures were taken in August of 2012, in one of the days when Aomori city hosted the Nebuta night parade. The pictures show the preparations for the show.

Эти фотографии были сделаны в 2012-м году, в один из августовских дней когда город Аомори встречает вечерний фестиваль Небута. Участники парада готовятся к шествию.







It is ok to use modern technology in making floats. On the picture below, a Panasonic crew member is cleaning the projector screen, which will later light up their float.

В изготовлении плотов не запрещается пользоваться современной электроникой. На этой фотографии видно как один из участников экипажа Panasonic чистит экран проектора, который вечером добавил красок в их заявку на победу в фестивале.




The underside of the float has all the necessities: lots of water (it is hot in Aomori in August) and fire extinguishers just in case.

Под каждой из композиций находится все самое необходимое: питьевая вода (в Аомори жарко в Августе) и огнетушители на всякий случай.




Time to line them up!

Пора начинать!

  1. Японцы курят по-моему что-то каждый день, они всегда поражают меня своей фантазией :) А на сам фестиваль вы ходили?
