Peccadilloes in Nippon and in Nipponese with a Quixotic Perspective. Coming at you from Yokohama, near Tokyo.
Very cool vid, Clay. I'm wonderin' how old those 山車 are. Great carving and 'bling' :) ...is there website that lists different local まつい? Would be great to catch one sometime. Thanks for the 'Benny Hill'! The mental image of bikini clad festival goers was priceless. ;)
Good question on the age of those carts. The festival has been around since at least the 1700s...
