Yesterday Asakusa held its 27th Samba Carnival since 1981. It’s Tokyo largest annual samba carnival with over 500,000 crowd lined up on the street this day of the year to look on the passionate parade of samba dancers makes its way around Sensoji Temple in a highly charged rhythmical atmosphere.
The parade took about 5 hours that day and it’s sure a hot day there. Enjoy the rest 🙂
50 images and 1 video more after the jump.
Before the pictures, here is my crappy video shot on one of the groups. Sorry, I was holding my big camera, taking shots and taking this video all at the same time. Although you might get a little bit of the rhythmical atmosphere there.
Now, for the pictures. All the pictures here as usual have its high-resolution view, just click on it.
Sorry again for the flood of images, still better than 400 of it. Alright, till then.
