On Sunday I went to a festival with a friend Eva. It was called Sanja Matsuri. They carry shrines around the different districts (I think there is over 40) and chant taking small steps kicking their feet. It is a festival that is dedicated to the spirit of 3 guys. 2 of them found a Buddha statue fishing. The 3rd one found out about this converted the other 2 (brothers) to a life of Buddhist faith. Eva told me the festival has been going on for 700 years. I loved the chants and the energy from everyone. Though to me, the shrines started to all run together and look alike.
