Where else could be a better place to see so many Japanese in their traditional costume than at Sanja Masturi (given that we have limited time on a short visit to Tokyo)?
We were lucky to see many beautiful hakama and kimono costumes in Asakusa.
The two geisha passed by me before I have a chance to take a better snapshot.
Every turn we made, there was bound to be someone in traditional costume.
You could see the geta sandal versus the lady wearing modern high heel in the background.
Japan is a unique country where it can keep their traditions alive while embracing high tech living.
Most Japanese are proud of their traditional costume and loved to have their pictures being taken (not all, but most of them).
Three officials were chitchatting in front of Asakusa Shrine.
Japanese also loves wearing hat.
This weekend was hot and sunny. It was a good day to celebrate Sanja Matsuri with traditional outfit.
Many dog owners also liked to dress up their pets in costume.
Sanja Matsuri is definitely a place to see and to be seen.
Sanja Matsuri was definitely the best highlight of our recently trip to Tokyo. Thank you so much to some of the friendly and polite Japanese who made our trip memorable.
