Nezu Shrine Festival – Today

Tokyobling's Blog

The season for late summer festivals are not over yet! If you are in Tokyo today I recommend heading over to the Nezu Shrine right on the edge of Bunkyo Ward, not far from Ueno. It has a little bit of everything, performances, omikoshi, yatai (food and games stands) and ceremonies. Lots of fun for any age! I especially enjoy the all-female taiko drummers, whom also performed twice yesterday.

Yesterday’s festival was punctuated by a bit of rain but today looks like it will be drier. I took these photos during last year’s festival when the weather was fantastic.
