Omiya Matsuri Ladder Acrobatics

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on October 1, 2015

At the annual Omiya Matsuri in Omiya City north of Tokyo, in Saitama Prefecture, I saw the splendid ladder acrobatics of the local team. The weather was perfect for ladder acrobatics and they had the whole square in front of Omiya station for themselves. Ladder Acrobatics is probably one of my favorite things to see in Japan, when it comes to traditional culture. It must take some special kind of courage and team work to pull this off!

    i can only assume one must love the height to acquire an inner strength for balancing oneself on a ladder.
