Local Festival

This is the second time I’ve taken part in the shinto festival near my house. It happens every two years and involves hefting a 1 ton portable shrine around the neighbourhood with regular stops for sake and snacks. We start off at the local shrine 9am and finish around dusk at 5pm.

I took these with a Ricoh GR1 film camera. It was inconspicuous enough that I could get in among everyone. Having said that, everyone was so hyped, and so sake-soaked, I probably could have used anything.

I did actually do my bit carrying the shrine, but I’ll save you the picture of my poor purple bruised shoulders the next morning.
