Asakusa Samba Carnival 2015

Teams of elaborately attired dancers flood the streets of Asakusa for Japan's largest samba carnival, shaking their tail feathers to the Brazilian beat as they work their way along Umamichi-dori, past the Kaminarimon and toward Tawaramachi. First held in 1981 in an attempt to revitalise the neighbourhood, the carnival is now one of Tokyo's more popular summer events, drawing half a million spectators.
