The 25th of Tokyo History Festival(東京時代祭り) was held at Asakusa(浅草) in Tokyo on the 3rd of November 2013.
Local people march in various ancient outfits, such as aristocrat, warrior and citizen
from Heian period(平安時代)(794 – 1185A.C.) to Meiji Period(明治時代)(1868 – 1912).
Some people act popular tycoons, such as ‘Minamoto no Yoritomo(源頼朝)’ and ‘Tokugawa Ieyasu(徳川家康)’.
I first took a seat here, in front of ‘Iwami-ya(岩美屋)’.
It was boring.
Most marching people didn’t entertain spectators.
There were some booing behind me.
When I look into the distance,
marching people played their show.
I stood up and moved there, across ‘Sushizanmai(すしざんまい)’.
I climbed on a guardrail to shoot a video.
However, a police warned me not to do so.
I peeped and shoot videos through a hole of cloth partition.
This place was occupied by authorized people.
I found most seats were not taken.
I hope the festival association think over.
Here are some videos.
