kon-chiki-chin, kon-chiki-chin It`s Gion Matsuri today, is anyone going? I went on the 15 and 16 it was crazy. So many people, games, alcohol stands, screaming salesman, yukata, garbage piles, highly expensive food.

All the right elements for a good time.

I played this game were I had to shoot a prize with a cork gun to win it. I won a Goo can that shoots water (Qoo joke). It was just funny to see that you could shoot down cigarette packs also. :smoke:

I wish I could go. You are so damn lucky!!!
It's Friday night in Toronto and my friends have all gone to Casino Rama. ARGHHHH! I hate gambling. I am too cheap to lose. I don't even buy lottery. $1 for a dream? I would rather buy a lollipop!

I fancy a Sratch n' Win every once in awhile, but I hate Casino's and it's greedy atmosphere.

You get to have a few moments of fun! For all the hard work you have to do, you should get to play once in a while. Don't forget to take lot's of pics!!
