This is the third time for me to witness this festival, that is held in Narita quite near from Tokyo International airport. I like this festival, as there are so many parsticipants and all of them join with much joy.

Hello dear Takero,
a very exuberant picture full of interest, action, dynamism and joyful atmosphere. I like very much the happy smile of the lady in the foreground as well as the way we see the rest of the rich scene over her open arms. There's great capture of details even at the furthest and busiest parts. It surely was extremely difficult to meet the lighting challenge but you did superbly. An extraordinary photo, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hi dear Takero. What animated and joyful expressions and everywhere one looks people are doing their best to add to the festive mood. Great POV which makes the eye finally rest with the people up on the roofs. Live music and traditional too! Regards. Klaudio.

My question Takero, is this a new camera or is the old 5D Mark II?
I have the new lens 16-35mm F/2L-USM 82, is a lot better, not deformations.
Excellent picture with the girls, as lovely subject.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

This is a very well composed photo where you have covered almost the entire frame with interesting details. The smiling ladies provide a charming foreground and the huge carts fill the background with excited people balancing high above the ground.

Konichiwa Takero san
A very lively capture of this merry festival. I vividly remember Narita very well as we have spent an extra day there at the beautiful Shinshoij temple (commonly known as Narita san)and its gardens after being dumped from an overbooked flight in Narita. It was one of the most beautiful days we spent in Japan at the time.
have a good day

You keep showing great series of these festivals. Another good capture here - I like the joy and the composition, with this woman holding fans in foreground. And then, there's so much going on in background. I like it!
