This was taken at a local festival in Japan known as the juuninichi festival, always held on 12th December. It’s very colorful and exotic and is held in the evening so the lights of the food stalls and the amazing characters walking around just overwhelm the senses. This guy was making animals out of hard candy which he first softened and shaped into these incredibly detailed figures. The kids around him were just fascinated as you can see.
Taken in Saitama, Japan.
