Shinjuku Eisa Festival 2017

This Okinawan summer festival takes place in the streets and on various stages near Shinjuku station, in the heart of Tokyo. Originally part of a ritual performed at the end of the old Bon season, dancers and drummers fill the streets with music and cheer as they honor the spirits of their ancestors and wish for good fortune. Though this event originates in rural Okinawa, it has become a city summer staple in the capital.
