Tokyo travels: Sanja Matsuri in Asakusa

Yesterday, I enjoyed a trip to Sensou-ji, the large and beautiful temple complex in Asakusa, for the first day of Sanja Matsuri. Sanja Matsuri is a festival essentially honouring the founders of the temple, based around three portable shrines. The festival begins with a parade, which is what I was there to see - and film! Check out my vlog on the matter! I should probably have shaved, though...!
