Today and tomorrow (5/4 and 5/4) the annual Danjiri festival is held in Okamoto (eastern part of Kobe). About ten groups push the ornate Danjiri Carts or Danjiri Guruma slowly down the street while playing traditional music using drums (Taiko) and bells (Kane) and waving to the crowd. You can find out more at the wikipedia link below.
I took a picture one Danjiri Guruma in Okamoto near my school today and put a video up on my facebook page and my YouTube Channel. Please Enjoy them.
