Sanja Matsuri is special this year because the event was cancelled last year due to the March 2011 disaster.

去年的庆祝活动因为辐射事件而被迫停办, 所以今年将会更多人出席。

2012 is the 700th anniversary, so the organizers estimated more than 2 million people are joining this 3-day festival.

今年的游客会有几十万,加上当地人数会过两百万。可谓人山人海。

when we walked around the communities on Friday, we saw many local communities were giving the final touch for their miniature shrine.

超过百架神轿会出游,盛况可以比拟马来西亚黑风洞的大宝森节。

There are big and small floats. The bigger float can weigh over one ton.

Every float has elaborate and sophisticate decoration.

美轮美奂的肩托神轿,有小型给小孩们抬的,也有重过吨的大型神轿。
