Young yanquis at the Tsukamoto festival

They're doing their best to look all tough. Aren't they just adorable??

 

This is a neighborhood festival in Tsukamoto, Osaka. Four girls ride on the float, banging taiko drums and screaming at the tops of their lungs. They stop at each house and scream out the name of the person living there. I'm not sure what happens when the resident answers the door, although I'm pretty sure if it were me there would be a large bucket of icewater involved. Still, they were all nice enough....
