Sanja Matsuri

Back in May, Sam and I went to Sanja matsuri in Asakusa. It’s the largest festival in Tokyo, and celebrates the three men who founded the Senso-ji temple in Asakusa. It was pretty fun and had a super long parade of floats, including many kid floats, which were carried by kids! Here are some videos and pictures:

It was super crowded and the polic kept asking people to make room for the floats to pass by. This one is in the video and was a musical float.

A gold fish catching game in the festivals stalls. There are food and other shopping opportunities. I got some steamed potatoes with mentako mayo, corn, and miso. It was so good, I kept eating a version of it for the following weeks until I burned out on mentako mayo.
