Iga Festival II: More Pics, More Puppies Wearing Costumes

October 25, 2009

The city of Iga (birthplace of the ninja, fun fact) held another festival. Unlike the last one which featured performances in the street, this event saw a series of large shrines being carried through the streets. People sat in the shrines playing instruments. I was told they have to be in the things starting at 8 in the morning, so I can’t imagine many jobs more boring than that. This festival was very similar to the last festival, save for an increased number of french fry booths and the “pickle on a stick” merchant. Lets check the pics!
