This the Sanja Matsuri, where the locals carry their mikoshi, portable but very heavy shrines, to the Asakusa Temple, Tokyo. I loved seeing the enthusiasm as everyone joined in to lug in around a hundred shrines. But this particular one attracted more interest, followers and photographers than most. The clue to why, is the man you can see waiting for it; his tattoos indicate he is Yakusa, the Japanese mafia. So I had to wonder whether, in this instance, the prime motivation was devotion or duty?
