Kawagoe matsuri

I went to the Kawagoe matsuri today. Matsuri means festival. Kawagoe is a city, located in Saitama prefecture, about 45min from Shinjuku.

Kawagoe is famous for old buildings from the Edo era, and call their city coedo, or small Edo. Edo is old name for Tokyo.

Kawagoe is also famous for their annual matsri, where dozen or so dashi or float, like you can see in this pic, go around the city.
