I’ll go ahead and call Day 1 of Shimazake Festa 2019 a success.
I was able to catch up with friends and meet new ones. A few of which I knew only via social media but hadn’t met in person. Whether you’ve known someone for 10 years or 10 minutes, it is always nice to chat with people who share your passion or interests. And, especially during events like this, you never know who you’ll run into.
