Danjiri Parade, Sonoda

Now that autumn is well and truly here, lots of local neighbourhoods parade their danjiri (floats) around the streets. These parades are quite low-key, very local, but with a great atmosphere. Local families accompany the floats, wandering around the neighbourhood - much like families go Trick or Treating at Hallowe'en in Western countries.

Big contrast with the Danjiri Matsuri in Kishiwada, Osaka in September:

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
