Kamakura Beach Festa 2005

Mid-May sees the early season "Beach Festa" (Japanese link) with hula dancing and ukelele playing all round.

They've got a lovely bunch of coconuts:

Also a sand-castle competition

Of course, no Japanese festival is complete without food stalls. Here is the usual array, with toffee apples on the far right, Hiroshimayaki (okonomiyaki) in the middle...but what is that one with the blue awning and children crouching round?

The writing literally translates as "Goldfish scooping"!?!

And sure enough, it really is a catch-your own dinner stall!
