the 'Enoshima Bali Sunset 2016' (Kanagawa, Japan)
Today, I went to the Eno-shima island (Fujisawa city) to see the festival titled 'Enoshima Bali Sunset 2016'.
This island seemed to transform into a miniature Bali island, where visitors were surrounded by the Indonesian island's cuisine and arts.
Eight Balinese music and dance groups had some performances and stalls of Balinese food and handcrafted goods such as Batik fabric for sale, along with a hands-on section for visitors to made their own incense and flower offerings.
Some of the music and dance groups performed at the 'Samuel Cocking Garden', a tropical flower park that overlooks the sea and adds to the holiday mood.
With the support of the Indonesian Embassy, Garuda airlines and other organizations from the country, the event has garnered a reputation every year among Japanese media of making visitors.
This event happens to take place during the 'Enoshima Toro', an event that sees lanterns light up the whole island during the month of August.
(one of summer traditions wihch is prevalent throughout Japan)
Bali island is one of popular destinations among Japanese travel lovers.
Even though I've been to Indonesia once (Batam islands only), willing to stay Bali someday.

A staff of Garuda provided me some their promotional items.

I brought my PL-380 and tried to catch far FM stations at the observation floor of Enoshima lighthouse.
