Nihonbashi 100 Years

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on March 30, 2012

It was a relatively warm spring day here in Tokyo yesterday and it made long for festival season to start up once again! Here are a few snapshots I took of the wonderful participants of the Nihonbashi 100 Year Anniversary festival last year. This part of the parade was the traditional festival wagons, with a bit unusual lions head shrine at the end! The kids pulling did a good job and even the smallest seemed to put their hearts in it. I took these photos with my favorite lens, the amazing 135mm f2.0 DC. Enjoy the weekend!

    Oh! Wonderful! I love the look of the fierce lion’s head. (And the first oneisan’s face.) ^_^;
