Kitazawahachimangu Matsuri 2013

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on August 18, 2014

The grand festival at the Kitazawa Hachimangu near Tokyo’s Shimokitazawa district is one of my favorites of the “larger” smaller festivals. There are so many things to see and lots of performances and some very very dedicated local people taking part in the festival. I took these photos in black and white at last year’s festival. This year’s festival is coming up in September!

    Great pictures. Do you know when in Sept. this matsuri is coming? I am visiting Tokyo, and Setagaya is my old hometown.
