The Village Elders; Tsukishima, Tokyo

These old boys were at the front of the procession, chanting, singing as the 'mikoshi' approached. Amazing faces, amazing scene. Such a wonderful opportunity we had to catch this once-in-three-years festival on our photowalk last weekend.

    your photoblog is so stunning, so beautiful, and so inspiring, I have just stood here at my laptop in awe. thank you for sharing your visions of Japan

  2. Festivals in Tokyo are amazing as usual. But it's strange, they don't look like they are singing or chanting at all!
