Yamakasa 2007

Postby Tom » July 27th, 2007 11:52 am

Japanese men in loincloths racing around the city while carrying multi-ton floats. Onlookers cheer them on and dump buckets of water on their heads to keep them cool. It's got to be Yamakasa!

- The Yamakasa: Fukuoka's 750 year old festival
- Yamakasa Festival

I had the privilege of enjoying that this year and I just finished editing a video documenting my experience. You can see that video here: Yamakasa 2007. I hope you enjoy. :)
