Went to one of the biggest summer festival in Tokyo held at Yasukuni Shrine just at the back of the Imperial Palace. It's a festival that is considered a tribute to the dead. Mitama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Well indeed it was big and crowded but organized and orderly. I went there late in the afternoon already to avoid the heat. Got a few shots that I think are worthy of sharing. :smile: Camera used were Oly E-M5 and E-PM2 Lenses used were Samyang 7.5mm fisheye, Oly 17mm f/1.8 and Oly 75mm f/1.8 1. When I said crowded... it's not an overstatement 2. Apparently there are 30,000 lanterns on this shrine alone... I did not attempt to count them haha 3. The big lanterns, the crowd and the food stalls 4. The smaller lanterns 6. 7. Girls in Kimono near the smaller lanterns 8. one of the smaller gates I might add a few more later on... Hope you guys enjoy. And oh constructive criticism is always welcome... hope to hear from many of you.
