Matsuri madness

Spend Saturday at the Akasaka Matsuri (japanese fesitval) where they carried around these shrines (weighing several tons) around the area.  Both men and women take part in this festival (although the men tend to wear skimpier clothing) and it attracts over a million people for the day.

And of course it was packed


Kiddy versios also included (with training wheels)

A procession approaches

Many many helping hands

One appears in the distance

WIth the temple as a backdrop

Some happy doggies around

Snack time!



Little toys

Nice matching outfits

And the shoes

Women can help too!
