Musicians, Sanja Matsuri, Asakusa

The traffic signal gives it away. The streets of Asakusa provide the venue for this festival and all are invited.

Donald Richie, in his wonderful "Japan Journals (1947-2004)" writes, "Me, I also want to snatch beauty whole from the mud of time. I want beauty, grace, and good will, to be recorded. That, and my own small part in arranging it." He was writing on a different topic, but it seems applicable to the motivation of the photographer.   Posted by Picasa
