Royal Milk Tea Kit Kats! These came out on Monday. I haven't tried them yet as they are white chocolate and, well that's just wrong.
These Cookies Plus Kit Kats are not new, but they are new to me. I forgot about them, but I found them in the same place as the flavors above.

One of the things you can see from the turret is Saikai Park.
There was also a campground here. I can't say that I'm all that familiar with Japanese campgrounds. These campsites seemed very close together. I saw a sign with a 3,000-yen price on it. I was driving it at the time, but that may be the price for a night of camping.

Floats that are between 5 and 6 meters high and weighing between 2 and 5 tons are paraded throughout the streets of Karatsu in Kyushu.
Standing atop of the float were several guys who were throwing something -- rice maybe -- at the men closest to the float. There were people playing flutes and drummers providing a beat under the floats.
It looked like pulling these floats was very hard work.
The picture above is of several of the floats lined up waiting to be pulled out of the sand.
If you're interested in this festival, just head to Karatsu and look for the throngs of people. You can't miss it! It's similar to a festival I caught up in Kawasaki.
