Kurame Shrine Festival

Kurame Shrine Festival | Tokyobling’s Blog.

Kuramae Shrine might not throw the biggest festival in Tokyo, in fact it might be one of the smallest, but there’s no shortage of energy in it! The official shrine omikoshi was carried around accompanied by a hayashi (folk music) team and at the end, just after the festival has officially been closed I hung around in the back to see how they managed to get the omikoshi into its shrine again. This omikoshi is several tons of weight and there’s very little room inside the shrine but they got it in safely in the end.
