Foreign Friday

Fall Festival parade
Misawa, Japan
1979
While some of the floats in the parade were pulled through the streets, this one was carried by several strapping young men who were, no doubt, well lubricated with sake by the end of the parade route. The platform they are carrying probably held ceremonial sake casks for the local shrine. (Note the circular containers on top of the platform.)

  1. That looks heavy, even with that many men carrying the load!

  2. I was thinking exactly the same thing as Tracy. They would need the sake in order to carry that float very far.
