Kanda matsuri (Kanda festival) was held last weekend here in Kanda.
It’s one of three most famous festival in Tokyo:) It’s a very very very big festival!!
This is called Mikoshi which is a portable shrine. The spirit of a deity temporarily reposes during the festival held in his honor.
There is 108 Chokai which is like neighborhood associations. Each of us have our own Mikoshi and carry it on the festival:) We also have our own colored Happi.
On Sunday, all of Mikoshi were in Chuo-Dori (Chuo street)!!
I saw the kid were standing on the Mikoshi and led people carry the Mikoshi:)
Would you like to see it?
The next one is in 2 years 2019!!
