Was there for both days, carried both the chokai mikoshi and the miya mikoshi. This year was especially crazy as last year's was canceled. Good fun.

I was there today (Sunday) and when the mikoshi were out front of Kaminarimon, it was really crazy, so crowded. Some of the leaders really knew how to work up a crowd.
