Kumagaya Uchiwa Matsuri Festival 2013

Kumagaya in Saitama Prefecture is famous for some of the hottest summer temperatures in the Tokyo/Kanto area. On a relatively “cool” (around 33 C) evening, I went to see the Uchiwa Matsuri of 12 ornate floats paraded around the streets until they all converged at a major intersection. It was the final evening and festival climax on July 22, 2013.
