This summer vacation, I went to(1) Hokkaido and Tohoku. One of the places I went to was Akita City. I went there to visit(2) some friends and to see(3) the Kanto Festival. Since childhood, the performers in the Kanto Festival learn how to(4) balance lantern poles on their hands, hips, shoulders, and head. At first(5), the bamboo poles are not very(6) tall, but little by(7) little they are made taller and taller. It can be dangerous, but if(8) the pole starts falling or a lantern catches fire, the performers know exactly what to do(9). They quickly pick up the pole and start(10) balancing it again. I was so impressed, and had a lot of fun!
