金龍の舞 (read: Kinryu-no-mai)


This post might be not really up to date since it has happened few days ago. I just found the right time to do some editing on the video (yes these things of editing and uploading were really taking much time) and photos today.
Kinryu-no-mai or which is known as Golden Dragon Dance in English is one of the annual event that you can find in Asakusa, Japan. This event is held every year on March 18th at Sensoji Temple, Asakusa. As for my experienced this year, it has been said that the performance would start at 1.30 pm but actually the dragon showed up at around 2 pm. To be honest, i was a bit disappointed. Why? I was expecting that the dragon would be much bigger than that, when it came up, one thing that was on my mind is "wow, that's too small!". Well, anyway it's 7 meters long and 88 kilos.
