It makes my heart race to see girl crouching and trying to scoop a goldfish.
When I was younger, I did wear my yukata to a festival but, recently other than for work purposes, I barely got any chance to wear it at all….But, I went to a summer festival last year! Due to a seminar in Uni, I’ve visited Tohoku’s Rikuzentakata-city a few times, I was conducting research at the temporary housing in the disaster area. That time, the locals were like, “Please come”, and I went to visit “Kisenmachi's fighting tanabata matsuri”.
The viewing point of this festival is that there is a collision of Huge logs are fastened to 2 carts at high speed that is called a "fight". After that, there will be a rope from the carts and you pull them as though you are in a tug-of-war, whomever pulls the cart into their territory wins.
Though it’s my first time seeing it up close, I was really fazed by the vigority that I went “Wow!”
I was able to feel the atmosphere created by the denizens of Rikizentakata-city and I was moved. Even though doing volunteer work is important, I think it is also important to tour around the famous spots. I would wish for everyone to see that too!
At a festival, my eyes will automatically roam to a girl wearing a yukata and playing the goldfish scoop. Somehow, the posture of a girl squatting seems more heart-grabbing than standing. And then, watching the girl trying to scoop the fish with all her might, then suddenly the net breaks and you see her being all sad, your heart will beat faster at that, you’ll want to hug her <3 If it’s a small gesture, the way a girl fans herself with a uchiwa is also pretty erotic and good. Somehow, it feels as though she’s un-protected? That’s the good point about it! When it’s summer, the girls wear lesser and the part that grabs me are the arms. Rather than a slender arm, I prefer those which are bouncy. You’d just want to poke them . I’m against diets!
A really cute translation! I really wish they make them wear the yukatas properly instead of posing like a slut :/
