Cast iron pan for matsuri mini cakes
Sanja matsuri this weekend in Asakusa
This festival looks like heaven. Gorgeous yakuza tattoos. Who’s going this weekend? (Photo credit).
Hey Foreign Guy, a group of festival goers greets the camera
All dressed up and smiling for the camera. White booties in a large city fascinates me.
Pickle vendor at matsuri
Kids showing police officer new guns they bought at shrine festival
It still seems incongruous that every Tokyo shrine festival features, amidst food and game stalls, stands that sell boy band photos and also plastic guns. These kids seemed very excited to show their new arms to the police officer.
My neighbors look good without their pants
At least some of them do. Now I’m feeling the spirits visiting our undeserving home.
Taking the Metro to the matsuri
Like an Edo parade in modern Tokyo Metro.
Looking for directions, all dressed up
Metro map is certainly handy.
So this is where they store their pants
There’s something lovely about seeing the “backstage” of the festival, the little things that make the celebration possible. Like somewhere to stash your pants.
