OBSCURE, yet relevant niigata

It's that time of the year where the night's get a little colder and the woods get a little spookier, but not so much in Tagami Town, Niigata, where the annual—and all natural—Tagami Bamboo Boo is held.

From Sept. 16 - Oct. 15th, a once-neglected bamboo forest comes alive with art made from its very trees, and all at night! For me, it's simultaneously a super festive way to ring in the spooky season, while contributing to local art in a wonderful place.

Check it out, if you're in the area, and Happy Halloween!
