A Trip to Ojiya, Part II/小千谷への旅、パート2

It took me fifty minutes to amend my tax returns for 2012 and 2011, as instructed by a staff member.  After I left the tax office, I crossed Shinano River, 
and reached Sun Plaza.
World's No. 1 yon-shaku dama (4 shaku = 4 x 30.3 = 121.2 cm) ball (firework):
世界一四尺玉(4 x 30.3 = 121.2 cm)(花火)
The world's No. 1 ball is set off in Katakai Hanabi in September every year.

After I browsed through Sun Plaza, I decided to visit Nishikigoi no Sato first.

You can see a poster of Ushi no tsunotsuki at the center of the photo.
Ushi no tsunotuki (a type of bullfighting) is one of the events I'd like to see in the future.
