_manisa_ One of the three mini-shrines carried around at the matsuri in Asakusa on Saturday. These things literally weigh a ton, and when one of the western girls we know here participated one year, her shoulder was bruised and bleeding by the end of it. Apparently the carriers swap out and have breaks, during which they have little refreshment packs, and beer :) #tokyo #matsuri #festival 2w

_manisa_ On Saturday we went to the Sanja Matsuri, a festival dedicated to honouring the three men that established the temple in Asakusa. "It is believed that two fishermen—brothers named Hinokuma Hamanari and Hinokuma Takenari—found a statuette of the Bodhisattva Kannon caught in a fishing net in the Sumida River on the early morning of March 18, 628.[3] The third man, a wealthy landlord named Hajino Nakatomo, heard about the discovery, approached the brothers and converted them to Buddhism. The three men then devoted their lives to the Buddhist faith and consecrated the statue in a small temple.[4] This temple, now known as the Sensō-ji, currently houses the Kannon statue and is the oldest temple in Tokyo." #tokyo 2w
