Akabane Bakamatsuri (Festival)



The Kimono Dreamers turns foxes at Akabane Bakamatsuri (festival)

We joined the parade for Akabane Bakamatsuri (festival) under a blue sky in spring.

The event held every year in Akabane, Tokyo. There is a live performance, dance show, hero show and free market.

The main tourist attraction is the parade. This parade consisted of a student, a member of society club, musical band, dancer and people in costume. Thousands of people with portable shrines and floats paraded through the city.

We took part in the ‘Kitsune no nigiwai (fox gathering)’. We had 69 foxes in all.
