Kanda Festival (aka when Love Live attacked a festival)

This festival was really fun. Apparently it is only held once every two years, so I’m really glad I got to go. The food was delicious and way bigger than I expected. I also wasn’t expecting the overwhelming love for Love Live. Because of its close proximity to Akihabara the festival had a ton of love live fans and was selling special ema to make wishes on.
