55th Koenji Awaodori

The 55th Koenji Awaodori kicks off on the last weekend of August.
Recent years have seen the sweltering humidity beaten into submission from torrential rain, but that didn't put anyone off.

If you want some good street photos, be sure to get there early on the 27/28 August.
The actual dancing starts at 3pm both days instead of the usual 6pm. All part of Japan's continued reduction of electrcity outage

I'm posting up a pic that I took a few years ago.
One house near to my flat had put up two posters on their wall advertising the Awaodori at that time.
This wall was turned into a pile of rubble on the 11th March due to the earthquake.
