Kitanogomonren – Awaodori at Mitamamatsuri
More photos from the first day of the Mitamamatsuri at Yasukuni Shrine in central Tokyo. The four day event continues until Wednesday so there’s still plenty of time to see it all! One of the many performances I always try to catch is the awaodori dance by the local team, Kitanogomonren (北の御門連). Few awaodori performances take place at more beautiful places than among the many lanterns of the Mitamamatsuri.
If you are free tonight or tomorrow from 1800 I recommend going to see the festival for yourself!
