(two siblings pose in front of a mikoshi.)

the sanja matsuri, like many of the various festivals, is an event for both kids and adults-- things such as mikoshi and taiko drums are made tot-sized so that the whole family can participate in the fun. for me, it's quite heartwarming to see four generations together at the same time, laughing and talking and taking scores of photos.
