Images of Otsu Matsuri
Otsu-matsuri Festival (大津祭) was held in Otsu City last weekend. Here are some great shots, thanks to our fellow photographer, Hirotsugu Tanida!
In this festival, 13 floats covered with rich decorations parade around the city. It’s often compared to Kyoto’s famous Gion Festival, but Otsu has fewer floats and smaller crowds. If you want a quieter, laid-back atmosphere, this one is definitely a good call. Every October, so mark your calendar for next year!
