At Tokyo’s Fuchu City, I visited the Kurayami Festival a couple of months ago and saw these drummers resting in the shade of the railway tracks next to the main station. For photographers, having the subject in shadow during the day is pretty much ideal so I took the chance to take a lot of photos! Despite their break, they can’t let the big drums go silent so they kept taking turns keeping the drums sounding using two large baseball bats. Thousands of people followed these drums around the town for the two day festival, so there was an almost never ending stream of people lining up to take their turn at one of these many drums around town. Just walking around in the neighborhood is pretty amazing, listening to the drums booming around town. More photos to come!
