Japan’s No.1 Festival!! Asakusa Sanja Matsuri (Festival)!


Hello!! Summer 2014 is just around the corner!!

I took my son to Asakusa sanja matsuri last weekend in Asakusa, Tokyo. Do you know the hottest festival?



Carrying  an “Omikoshi” (almost 100 portable shrines were around there!!)  with team members is the biggest event and this photo below is a kid’s size shrine.

Surprisingly, he could join the event!! Basically people who lives there can join, but my friend’s step mother invited him and lend him a happi (a traditional costume for festival). A red ribbon is the sign on the shoulder to get some snacks XD!

many of little kids played Japanese drums.  They were all good players really!!

This one was carried by all adults, and seemed so heavey!





Oh! Don’t forget to eat street foods! This is one of pleasures at a festival.









I got a baked fish (Ayu in Japanese, a sweetfish)! yum yum…
