Kagurazaka – Akagi Shrine Festival

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on September 25, 2013

Festival seasons there are just too many places to go and events to attend. I passed Kagurazaka on the last evening of the Akagi Shrine festival and took these photos of the stalls around the shrine and the omikoshi of the local community. It was one of the first cool evenings since the start of summer but I think it is too early to call the end of summer yet! There are still a few festivals around to enjoy. Akagi shrine, which I have posted about a couple of times before is one of the most modern shrines in Japan, well worth a visit if you are into modern architecture.

    Oooh…crepes…I think I would spend all my time eating festival food.

    (I tend to visit at breakfast time. Today I walked about 7.25k before breakfast. :))

      Haha… 7.25km before breakfast?! Actually I do that too almost everyday… when I walk to my office (and walking is my hobby). Well done!
