I went to a lot of them when in Japan.they are related to the rice harvest, also a Japanese word for a festival . Sometime sponsored by local shrine or temple. Wink Smile Wink Also this is a great photo.

Yup, pretty much translates as festival. There is a main big one during the Summer months.
Great time to meet the locals, get very drunk and have a good time.

Too many distractions from the main subject. If you crop it to focus on that delightful child, you'll have a much better photograph. Great black and white. (I've tried the crop at 576 x 443.) Jan

Yes been there and don that. Another good festival is cherry blossom time. Went one year and boy did we get drunk. They were giving us so much to drink we didn't spend one dime all weekend.
