Kanda Matsuri 400 Years

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on May 12, 2015

This year’s Kanda Matsuri started last week and the peak was this weekend. The Kanda Matsuri is a festival centering on the huge Kanda Myojin in central Tokyo, right between Ochanomizu and Akihabara stations. It is usually a massive festival but since this year was the 400th anniversary so it was larger than ever. I took these photos on the Saturday, in and around the shrine. More photos to come!

    Japan has consistently developed in my mind as a have-to-go-to kinda place and these pics are helping to secure that position. Very awesome!
