I will introduce another famous winter festival in north area (this area was also damaged by the past big earthquake). The name of this festival is "Enburi". This fetstival has 800 years history and to hope Spring coming soonest and rich harvest this year. Men take the special unique hat like a horse head and children perform the charming dance. This festival is held on 17-19 Feb every year, this year this term falls on the weekend, so I did observe fortunately. I will up several shots among so much stocks(40GBs).

Hi Takero, Splendid capture of these guys in all their glory, super colours, well managed light, very interesting note, They seem very amused about something, maybe being bashful. So sorry to hear of your recent illness, do take care, your health is your number one priority. Take care, Cheers Iain.

Hello dear Takero-san
I hope you are doing well after recovery!
Is this your first post on the Enburi festival? I don't remember seeing you post pictures of this winter festival earlier...or maybe my memory does not serve me correctly. A nice picture of the three men quite uniquely & colourfully dress
