Morioka Sansa Odori and Jodogohama Beach

Last night I was at the Sansa Odori in Morioka.  It was a 1 km long parade of drums, flutes and dancing.

At the end of the parade, spectators were invited out into the street to join in the dancing.

Today I headed to the coast to an area called Jodogohama Beach.  Although it was more of a rocky shoreline than a beach.
