Thanks for sharing. Reply AnnaTrouble says: December 3, 2010 at 2:31 am Hi David, nah, it’s not early. 1AM on a Friday is just about right The weekend!!! And I need to poke around your other taikodai entries, this looks awesome! Thank you so much for sharing. Reply David says: December 3, 2010 at 9:53 am Thanks. Yeah, Taikodai are awesome (and wait until the Danjiri arrive – that’s for today or tomorrow if I have time… Well, Taikodai are more impressive, but there are less of them). (and I’m all for having the week-end start as early as possible) Reply Yoshi says: December 3, 2010 at 3:12 pm That mikoshi looks so big and heavy!!! And the performance must be very exciting. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Reply David says: December 3, 2010 at 3:18 pm Thanks. Actually, it’s not a Mikoshi, it’s a Taikodai. And yes they are big (5 meters, 15ft) and 2.5 tons. I invite you to check three posts ago for details, and two posts ago to see them in action.
