This Weekend: Sanja Matsuri

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on May 15, 2015

This weekend is the main two days of festivities in the massive Sanja Matsuri, the biggest festival in Tokyo in almost all aspects imaginable. Over a hundred omikoshi (portable shrines) make the rounds of the district and the shrines and temples, and hundreds of thousands of people gather to watch. Easily the high point of the year for all festival lovers here in Tokyo! I took these photos of the festival in 2014. I hope the weather stays as good this year!
