This day, I went to Yoyogi park.
I encountered in the plaza at the south gate of Meiji Shrine though the festival was held. A illustration of the Nebuta festival was decorated at courtyard of south gate, and the shamisen(literally "Musical instruments with three flavor strings"), and the dance were done in the hypothesis stage. I returned to this place after several hour rest had been taken in Yoyogi park. The people who put on a happi coat gathered this time, and several portable shrines were put on the courtyard. It seems to be a grand festival of autumn of Meiji Jingu that enshrines and celebrates 90 years. After a while, child's portable shrine, a medium portable shrine(for woman), and big portable shrine were shouldered by people who participate in festival and they began to move in the approach to a shrine.
This festival is named "Tennousai", and shakes the epidemic that goes around in summer as well as Gion Matsuri of Kyoto as the purified city type. It dyes to one brave, magnificent festival color in brave portable shrine pretense.
Meiji Shrine is the Shinto shrine that is dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his wife, Empress Shōken.

une jolie photo de fête traditionnelle où les sourires ne sont toutefois pas nombreux. Le temps de pose de 1/30e aurait pu être réduit pour une meilleure netteté.

In this picture I am so impressived by the vivid colors of the participants in green. They make such strong color and attracted the eyes and influenced the viewers' mind in looking deeper into this image. Closeness and good shooting angle are also another attractive elements, they fill the frame at right spot in the compo in excellent lighting and exposure. The two floats are nice inclusion and good framing. Well selected dof making them standout so superbly. Great effort and Congrats.
