The Approaching ‘Mikoshi’, Tsukishima, Tokyo

I did a photo-walk down in Tsukishima last weekend and myself and the folks that came out managed to catch a matsuri [festival] that only happens once every three years. The streets were mayhem. Great fun though. As the mikoshi [the portable shrine carried by people from the locale] approached, the frenzy cranked right up to the max.
