August 7, 2021: Nakake-Cho(In front of Pachinko Salon)
On the afternoon of the second day of Sendai Tanabata (Star Festival), so many people passed through the Nakake-Cho Street. However, the number of people passed through was clearly less than usual year: according to a newspaper, the number of visitors of the festival during 3 days was about 60% of usual year. Number of people who went in and out Pachinko salons were clearly less compared to the number of people on the street.

August 7, 2021: Nakake-Cho (In front of Mihara-Do)
This soundscape was recorded at in front of the Mihara-Do in the second block of the central street from the station. So many people passed through the street around here, too. A pachinko salon in opposition to the recording point broadcasted music loudly, but a few people went into the salon, as far as I observed while recording.

August 7, 2021: CLIS road (in front of AEON shopping center)
This soundscape was recorded in front of AEON. Around this point, many people passed through the street, too. The CD shop next to the recording point broadcasted promotion videos in front of the shop, but the position of the display was, diffrent from usual, far side from the recording point, and therefore less noisy than usual weekend.

August 7, 2021: In front of Fujisaki Department store
There were so many people around Fujisaki Department store. After I recorded the soundscape, I went shopping at Fujisaki and found that more shoppers than recent usual weekend were there.
