There is a lot going on this month. Apart from the usual celebrations, this year Numazu is coming out in high form to show the WorldSkill Competitors and Visitors are good time. For the rest of us this makes for a prime time to visit Numazu.
From the 14th of November to the 21st you can visit the WorldSkills competitions around Kadoike pond. Competetors from all around the road pit their trade skills against each other in such things as computer skills, metal work, cooking and even hair dressing. This has been pitted as a big event for Numazu and certainly worth a visit.
Numazu’s famous street dancing, Yosakoi Tokaido 2007, will also be held this weekend in downtown Numazu (South side). This event was big last year, with many people coming down from all over Japan. I remember sipping a beer and enjoying the dancing and music from my window sill. Yep lording over the masses.
Winter Stage will also be held this month on the 17 November. From what I understand, this event will be held on the Kano River, south Numazu. This looks to be a great night of fireworks, music and fun.
There is a lot more going on this month, but I don’t want to steal too much of the glory from the Numazu Newsletter-English Edition. You will just have to click here and see for yourself.
