This past Saturday, Randal and I went to Gifu Nourin, the local agricultural high school in Kitagata-cho, to see their school festival.
The taiko drummers were happy enough.
That's because they didn't see the giant katamari rolling its way into their lives.
We fled through this auspicious-looking archway.
But while taking shelter, I accidentally touched the dial on this machine.
And I became a duck.
All in all, it was a strange day.
