So I left Sydney on Friday morning after 48 hours of packing and unpacking, in any case I just could not sleep. As the half empty plane took off, my exhausted brain felt sick and more than a little dazed.
24 hours later I was in the middle of this
Through luck rather than planning I ended up arriving during the Sanja festival. Considered one of the largest festivals in Tokyo. I have never seen anything quite like it, virtually everyone was dressed up to be a part of the festival in some ways. Unfortunately this year they did not parade the three large shrines because of an accident last year, though the hundred or so mini shrines are just as impressive.
