This is Ayumi from SAKURA HOSTEL ASAKUSA.
Sanjya matsuri festival is held in ASAKUSA lastweekend.
This festival is also known as Asakusa matsuri, and it is one of the biggest festival in Tokyo with a history of almost 700 years.
It is so big that it attracts over a million people!!!
As most Japanese festival, participants carried the "Omikoshi(portable shrine)" around Asakusa area .
I am one of participant of this festival for 12 years.
This time also I invite many friends and enjoy together :D
Especially my son,
It was first time for him to join this festival thing.
I thought he is too small to join, but he didin't care!
After carrying Mikoshi,he got many snacks and got happy :D
It was a really owesom time tohang around many people .
I cant't wait next festival.
