Preparation for Sanja Matsuri 2012 浅草三社祭之准备篇
Sanja Masturi, one of the 3 largest festivals in Tokyo, Japan.
Today is the last day of the 3 days celebration at Asakusa Shrine.
Sanja Matsuri is special this year because the event was cancelled last year due to the March 2011 disaster.
2012 is the 700th anniversary, so the organizers estimated more than 2 million people are joining this 3-day festival.
when we walked around the communities on Friday, we saw many local communities were giving the final touch for their miniature shrine.
There are big and small floats. The bigger float can weigh over one ton.
Every float has elaborate and sophisticate decoration.
