A Sanja Matsuri (3 Shrine Festival) Adventure

Happy Friday friends! Finally starting to play catch up a bit on my blog. 😀 I wasn’t too sure where to start from my last trip to Japan, so I started with our first full day out and about! Sanja Matsuri <3 This is my second time there. Unfortunately I am not so swift with my blogging life right now. So I haven’t even told you the half from my first Sanja Matsuri adventure. But soro soro da yo! (little by little)

I’ll still blog “How to Grow Yourself as an International Artist” one day … #staytuned
Sanja Matsuri, 3-Shrine Festival, is one of Tokyo’s three great Shinto festivals. It’s held the third weekend of every May in honor of the spirits of the three founders of Asakusa’s Senso-ji temple. This year, Design Festa and Sanaj Matsuri collide. So we could only go for Friday. (soooo thankful! 😩😩😩) The festival attracts over 1 million people, annually (yikes! >.<) so luckily Friday is a semi-chill day as the festivival’s JUST getting started. ^^ Since Friday is the procession and pays more homage to Edo period (my favorite period of Japanese history) I was happy to experience Sanaja Matsuri this day. See that grin?! It’S a well-rested, excited Imani … ready to take on Tokyo!!!!! ^^ LEGGO ~
