Foreign Friday

Autumn Festival Float
Misawa, Japan
August 1979
The back of this float can be seen in this post. This is obviously a religious float, but I do not know enough about Japanese religions to give you any specifics about the images on this float although I believe the dominant figure is a buddha.

You can read more about the religions practiced in Japan here.

  1. Looks like a heavy float. Is it being carried by hand?
