Wish I was there. I just finished reading "Two Years Before the Mast" by Richard Dana and must say that the men who sailed the seven seas in bygone days were among the bravest and most skilled our planet ever produced. ♥

Over my 16 years living in Kobe, the tall ships, especially the Japanese ones, visited the port many times. Never missed a chance to get down to the harbor and drown myself in boyhood dreams. Did sailing when I was a teenager and some time in the navy.

They look wonderful in the day, and even more so in the night when lite up.

There are fireworks too.
