Oeshiki お会式 

When I moved to Tokyo last year, I rent a small one room apartment near my office, not knowing that this street is part of the historical path called 東海道品川宿 (Tokaido-Shinagawa-Jyuku). And once in a while I will bump into festival parade on my way back from the office.

お会式 (Oeshiki) was one of them, which I bump into again yesterday. It reminded me about the same event that I've some photographs taken but din't have the chance to share. I don't really have any idea about what kind of festival it is, but the costumes and big lanterns -  万灯 (manto) that they carry along the parade is kind of special.

Check out the link (in Japanese) if you want to find out more, if not just enjoy the photos!
