Summer Festivals in Japan: Fun on the Streets with Thousands of Humans!
Via Producer Kamasami Kong:
The are many summer festivals in Japan that feature everything from fireworks to food. One one of the most popular is the Azabu-juban matsuri held on the cobblestone streets of the Azabu-juban traditional shopping district.
Hundreds of thousands of both locals and tourists make their way through the shoulder-to-shoulder crowds to enjoy all kinds of Japanese and foreign foods as well as a wide variety of beer, wine and spirits from all over the world. There are sweet treats as well, including cotton candy, candy apples and shaved ice.
However, the festival is more than just food and drinks. It’s also about people watching, kimono clad girls, shouting food vendors, picture taking, selfies, music, dance, parades, taiko drum performances, goldfish scooping and so much more.

From the Production Team:
This was a fun day! A standard video production usually involves weeks, months if it’s particularly complicated, but over the weekend at the Azabujuban Noryo (cool summer nights) Festival and Roppongi Hills Bon Odori (traditional music & dancing) Festival, we challenged ourselves to shoot, produce and distribute this 2-minute video in only 7 hours! This was our first official collaboration with Kamasami Kong, and we look forward to many more!
