とうかさん (or toukasan) is held on the first Saturday in June. It's an event unique to Hiroshima and it marks the official start of wearing yukata for the summer season. Yukata are the summer version of kimono - although they are still super hot!

A group of friends & I got all gussied up in our Yakata (I had mine specially made, Japanese sizes and me don't agree) and headed on out to a beer garden for eat, drink & drink some more.

Great night, beautiful yukata and wonderful friends. What more could you ask for?
