This is one of my fav, top summer festival in Tokyo, Koenji Awaodori! I had 2nd chance to see it over the last weekend. Big thanks to Rukmini, the one who introduced this festival to me and also kindly went there early to take a seat for us this time! Although the weather wasn't as humid as expected, the crowd really blocked the air around us and created quite a nasty jam of human wall & wave on the street.. I have no idea about the history of this festival and have no intention to bore you guys with (pls google if interested). If you're in Tokyo next year, I highly recommend that you see this festival, it's hosted in Koenji neighborhood where lots of cool local shops and people are. This is a real deal! You can see how the shade of colors in the photo changes as you scroll down, this is due to the fact that we got there around 4PM and stayed until 7.30PM! All shots were taken with M-E + Jupiter 85/2 LTM :D
