Marine Day: Hamaorisai in Chigasaki

Hamaorisai is held annually during the Marine Day (Umi-no-hi) in Chigasaki City, Kanagawa. Hamaorisai, which literally means “descend to the beach festival”, is a summer festival in which people take the mikoshi, or the portable Shinto shrine, into the sea.

The photos were taken from 4:00 to 7:00 in the morning on the 19th of July, 2010.
