Don't Miss this year's 夏祭りNatsu Matsuri!!!

If you are coming to Singapore for YOG 2010, do not miss the 夏祭り Natsu Matsuri, i.e. summer festival organised by the Singapore Japanese Association every year.

The festival continues to be held at the Japanese Primary School (Changi branch), on Saturday 21 August 2010 from 5 pm. You can get your tickets from the Association earlier or face a mind-numbing crush of a wait, @ S$2 per entry. The Association will be staging a series of songs and dances and you can play games and such at the festival. You can also rent an obi and yukata to wear during the festival (no cosplaying allowed).

To get there, you can either drive to Expo, park there and get the free commute to the site, or take bus 2 (from Tanah Merah MRT), 5 or 37. I recommend the public bus.
