The Float of Kanda Myojin Festival


There were two big festivals in Edo. One of them was the Kanda Myojin festival. Another was the Sanno festival. These festivals were performed alternatively each year.
This is the float that was used in the Kanda Myojin festival.
This is a full-scale model. It reaches 8.6m (28 ft) high.
The Kanda Myojin festival is still performed now. However, today these floats are not used because the float's height interferes with low hanging electrical wires.
