Tokyo Gets Wet with Water Festival
Heading out in my local neighbourhood this weekend and I caught one of Tokyo's most interesting and fun festivals. Where usually Japanese festivals involve portable shrines being carried through the town, this festival had a fun summery twist! The shire carriers were doused with gallons on water! Even Tokyo's firefighters took to the streets to douse the festival participants.
