Japan (3) More pics (local festival) - Update

UPDATE:

Just uploaded the two videos (which I mentioned at the end of this posting) to YouTube with a short impression of the festival. I've embedded them after the pictures, but you also can check them here and here.

This time some pics which I took during a local festival exactly one month ago at the nearby shrine at Nerima area, Tokyo.


Japan knows many festivals, both local and nationwide. It's often said that you always will find a festival somewhere in Japan. Most festivals are based around a main event and often sponsored by a local temple or shrine. At most festivals you'll find lots of food stalls and some entertainment.

I also shot two short videos which I will uploaded to YouTube and will link or embed here. As soon as I upload to YouTube I will update this post with the URL to the videos or embed the videos in this post.

The last six pictures were taken at a nearby temple on the way back home.
The pics are a bit darker, because it was already late afternoon and on the way back when we passed the temple it was already started to shimmer.

For now enjoy the pics!
