Kanda Shrine | Tokyo, Japan

Just as I was going by a procession was coming out of the shrine lead by the shrine priests and followed by several hundred believers. Caught the lead priest with a bit of light on his white robes as he came out onto the small road that leads up to the shrine entrance. The street vendors were setting up their stalls in anticipation of the crowds expected to visit starting at midnight tonight and continuing for the first few days of the New Year.
