Comments - Terrific view of a festival procession along the Sumida River in the early morning as pilgrims make their way to the temple at Mt. Minobu. Groups of men in matching robes move through the street amidst decorations or floats with figures and red lanterns atop tall wooden poles. The line of worshippers stretches back across the New Ohashi (Shin-Ohashi) Bridge into the distance, the colorful floats towering above them against the dark sky. Customers at the teahouses along the water's edge pause to watch the parade pass by. A fantastic image with wonderful detail and bokashi shading in the water.
