This Weekend – Narita Gionsai – Chiba

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on July 10, 2015

Earlier today the grand Narita Gionsai started and it will continue all through the weekend. In my opinion this is one of the most interesting festivals in Chiba, complete with lots of colorful customs, some great grand dashi (mobile festival platforms) being pulled up and down narrow old streets and steep hills, as well as one of the Kanto regions more well preserved old merchant towns. If you are in the Kanto area this weekend I recommend a visit!

    The picture of the kids is my favorite. I like the contrast of the taller girl in the centre against the 3 smaller kids.
