Today, we went to the station, to the airport, and to the ferry terminal to welcome groups from Russia, Thailand, France, India and Latvia. Hakodate gave everyone a warm welcome with a beautiful summer’s day, and the forecast is also reasonably good for next week. Two more international groups arrive tomorrow. You can join all the WMDF crowd, including some of the in-Japan groups, for the Opening Party in Daimon’s Green Belt area. The Motomachi Stages run from Aug 5 to Aug 10.
