Festival float threading a narrow street


We recently had an autumn festival in my town in Osaka, Japan. This wooden float can be thought as a movable shrine, which is to deliver fortune to homes.

路地をゆくだんじり

先日、私の住む城東区(大阪市)の今福・鴫野で秋の祭りがあった。だんじり自体見て楽しいものだが、半被の文字(中之町)もまた味わいがある。

I love the festivals in the east expecially Japan. The obsecure angle re-enhances the natural raw beauty of the image.

well done.
