My JINS PC x Rilakkuma volume 2 glasses arrived! Woohoo.
As usual my Obon holiday was jam packed! It’s hard to do much during the day as its so so hot. Luckily most of the events we attended were night time activities.

On July 15th I attended Tamatsukuri Inari shrine summer festival (my local shrine) and the following day in pre-tyhoon weather went to Gion Matsuri in Kyoto.
