Sanja Matsuri

Sanja Matsuri (Sanja festival) is a annual festival of Asakusa shrine located in the precincts of Senso-ji temple.
This festival is held three days in May.

 On the second day of the festival, around 100 Mikoshi (portable shrine) from 44 neighborhood associations parade through streets of Asakusa.

 I took these photos in Senso-ji temple.
 I felt passion of the people.

These photos were taken on May 19 , 2012.

Those small temples seem to be very richly decorated and heavy to carry; The crowd around is very impressive!
