Kanda Matsuri

Kanda Matsuri is one of the three largest festivals of Tokyo. It involves carrying the Mikoshi (or the portable shrine) around places and finally arriving at the Kanda shrine.

This small palanquin is called a Mikoshi which is carried by people around the city. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mikoshi)

Everybody had the same enthusiasm…young and old alike

Specially made shoes were worn by many of the group members.
