Festival in Shibuya

Since it is still around 35 degrees Centigrade during the day, it is difficult to imagine that it is autumn, but the season of harvest festivals is starting with a vengeance.  I am carrying a お神輿 (omikoshi) on Sunday (12th) in my local neighborhood.  The purple banners hanging on Dogenzaka and in the streets and alleys nearby indicate that there is a festival coming soon in Shibuya.

It is somewhat strange to see the banner in front of the Prime Bldg. and the kogal paradise, Shibuya 109.  It will be even stranger if the omikoshi (portable shrine) is being carried by kogal wearing glitter makeup and other fashionable gear!  I won't be around this weekend to find out, since I'll be at our own festival, but I look forward to seeing scenes online of the Dogenzaka matsuri! 😀
