Kanda Matsuri 2013

Image

Dogs wearing clothes & revellers carrying portable shrines… One of the three great Shinto festivals of Tokyo returns after a four-year absence.

Traditionally held on odd-numbered years, the 2011 Kanda Matsuri was cancelled due to the Tohoku quake and tsunami – meaning this year’s event was the first since 2009.

Quintessentially Japanese, Matsuris like this are what makes living in this country so special.
