    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     SankarP photographed the Asakusa Samba Carnival on August 31 in Tokyo, Japan. He says this is an annual festival that started in 1981 in an effort to revitalize the area. 'The carnival is one of the most popular summer events in Tokyo and the biggest of its kind in the country. The whole event is modeled on the iconic Rio de Janeiro Carnival,' he said.
