    1. Thanks Lina, Yes, it sounds like a lot of fun with lots of cool activities and food. Should be a big crowd there if its a nice summer's day. We will be there as it is very close to where we are staying :)

    1. Thanks Lisa, Probably a bit too far for you in QLD. This will be the second big Japanese festival this month, so we are really lucky. Do you have any in QLD?

  6. 先日遊びに行きました。
    正直…もうちょっとストールや特にフードが多いといいな、
    と思いました。企画する側としてはなかなか大変なものが
    あるとは思いますが…。
    せっかくやるからにはもっともっと魅力あるイベントに、
    という願いもあります。集客率を高めるため、もっといろんな
    日本を紹介するためにも、ぜひ参考にしていただけたら嬉しいです。
    来年も期待しています。

    1. Thanks for the comment K, I appreciate your feedback and agree with most of it. However, I do not have any involvement in the running of the festival. We hope someone from the Frankston Festival committee can see your comments and build upon the festival for next year. There was a great turn out this year and it should go from strength to strength.
