Photographer's Note

These young girls are performing "Tekomai" at the Narita City Gion Matsuri (Festival). They basically walk along hitting those steel rods on the surface of the road making a simple tune. From what I can make out, there are two rods in different keys. As they hit the rods on the road in different times the jangling tune is quite pleasant. You can also see two "Dashi", the festival carts passing each other in the distance, though I threw them out of photo to concentrate on the main subject, Tekomai.

Take a look at the other photos from this day in my travelogue.
