Photographer's Note

This is the second installment of my festival pic.

These trail of people were at least 30 men strong, but the whole parade of people were about 2 to 300 strong and they were dancing a playing these instruments all along the street, ti was truly amazing. These particular instruments were like gongs played with a wooden hammer, they would walk down the street a bit and then perform a ritual symbolising good luck to the surrounding houses for a prosperous new year, because in Japan, when Spring comes, it means a new beginning and all these dancing and instrument playing meant that the houses near them were going to have good luck, some of the people from the houses donate money to the buddhists who walk down these streets during the parade.

It was truly amazing.

I hope you like their costumes and their traditional footwear.

I havent altered anything, just cropped a bit of the sides

I hope you like it
