Photos: Tondo Matsuri at Waseda-jinja

Just got back from tondo matsuri at our local shrine. It’s quite a local affair, and the old guys let all the kids go a bit mad throwing all the piles of new year decorations and talismans dropped off over the New Year holiday. Great fun. Zenzai and roasted mochi too.

More tondo here.
