Today was the first day of blocked holidays in Japan, Golden Week, so a lot of people visit the fesitval from and out of Nagasaki. 

I went there with our guests and locals to see sailing demonstrations. It was baking hot and we had been waited about 1hour but still worth to see the ships with sailing under such a  beautiful weather like today. 
So many people......
Had been waited about an hour under sunshine...
After seils set!
