  1. “Aomori Nebuta Matsuri” is the most famous one of Japanese summer festival.

  2. very cool!!! excellent collection!

  3. A robust and muscular group of images–nicely contrasted with prior groups.

    • Thank you very much! 
      Yes, although this group of images is heterogeneous in my photographs, it is a very important accent. Those floats that was filled by forces gave me energy and a lot of inspiration.

  5. So many fascinating images on your blog. Powerful and caring photography.

  6. its strong and contrasting colors gives it meanings that perhaps, only Japanese can feel..

    • Thank you for your comment! Especially in festivals of Japan, such strong colors are used in many cases. Probably, Since most of “Mikoshi” called “Nebuta” have a theme which is fight, such colors are used for a expression of the brave.
