Along with the parade floats and portable shrines, the parade of Kanda matsuri was filled with samurai on horseback, people dressed as feudal lords, and their processions.

Kanda Matsuri is a festival that has been going for hundreds of years. A long time ago the festivities got so out of hand that the emperor ordered for the festival to only happen on odd numbered years. 

The 2017 Kanda Matsuri was a bit subdued due to heavy rains, but the parade still pressed on, and was quite the sight to see. 

Here’s a few of the floats from the parade.

Prayer tablets at Kanda Shrine. Kanda Shrine is a very important shrine in Tokyo. It’s also very close to Akihabara which means things can get……weird.
