Urayau Sanjya Matsuri: It Takes Community

As the summer Olympics rolls around, so does the once every
four years Urayasu Sanjya Matsuri. [ Three Shrine Festival ]. Now on the border
across from Tokyo this once poor fishing village could only afford to
hold their festival every four years. Nowadays its a HUGE party, and
the community really comes together to have a good time and carry
the heavy portable shrines around the neighborhood.

Its a time when people open their gates, break bread with neighbors,
and get piss roaring drunk. Also the local yakuza can show off their tats,
and for 3 days be just another family in Urayaysu.

To me its beautiful.
