The Parade of Sumiyoshi Festival

The parade of Sumiyoshi Festival was taken place on the first day of August.
The old Edo period style of parade was rivived five years ago, and since then, we can experiece the traditional parade every year. Until then,some of these attractions were carried by trucks.

I saw this parade on Kishyu Road near the Yamato River, in Osaka City side.
