Japan and a Brazilian Samba Carnival together; that’s what happens every summer in Japan’s version of the Rio Carnival in the Asakusa district of Tokyo.

Held on the last Saturday in August, the Asakusa Samba Festival is a carnival that's perfect during a hot Tokyo summer..

This Tokyo style samba festival is a relatively new addition to the Japanese calendar. The first carnival was held on August 29, 1981 to celebrate the long standing ties between Brazil and Japan.

There are usually 30 - 40 dance teams taking part in the Asakusa Samba Festival, with the winning team of the Rio de Janeiro carnival for the year also invited to take part. The dance teams are divided into 3 leagues. The top league is made up of all the professional dancers and musicians who will be competing during the Grand Parade.

Almost 5000 participants paraded through the streets of Asakusa in wild, sexy and sometimes strange costumes. This year (2010) was the 30th anniversary of the Asakusa Samba Carnival.

One of the reasons for a Japanese Samba Carnival is that Japan and Brazil have had a long connection, with Brazil having the largest population of Japanese outside of Japan because of the over 200,000 Japanese farmers who moved to Brazil to work on the coffee plantations in the early 1900′s.

When thinking of Samba, the first thing that comes to mind is that the women are elaborate, sexy outfits that don’t hide a whole lot, and the Asakusa Samba Carnival was no different. Here’s some of the sexier photos  shot.

Asakusa is Tokyo's oldest geisha district — today it still has active geisha tea houses. It's the most traditional Japanese neighborhood in Tokyo. Every August this old neighborhood is rocked by Brazilian dance culture.

It's one of Tokyo's best festivals: the Asakusa Samba Carnival.

The Asakusa Samba Carnival is one of Tokyo's more lively and popular summer festivals. It attracts 500,000 visitors each year.

The festival has been held each year at the end of August since 1981. The one exception being 2011 when the festival was canceled due to the impact of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.

The fact that there are multiple summer Samba festivals in Tokyo illustrates the strong cultural ties between Japan and Brazil. No word if there are plans to resume this festival in the future.
