More Sanja Matsuri Saturday Snapshots

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on May 19, 2015

More photos from the great Sanja Matsuri (festival) last Saturday! The weather was not perfect, especially in the morning with a big of light rain, which I guess kept a few people from the festival. It wasn’t very crowded at all! The crowd returned with a vengeance on the Sunday though, which was as crowded as ever! The main action at the festival takes place around the smaller Asakusa Shrine next to Sensoji temple during the Saturday. The Sunday is all about Sensoji itself though.
