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.

33rd Asakusa Samba Festival 2014
PHOTO: 33rd Asakusa Samba Festival 2014
There were lots of shaking during the 33rd Asakusa Samba Festival. For a change, I am not talking about earthquake. Japan(ese) summer would not be completed without the sounds and beats of samba. I think I haven't missed this event since coming back to Japan in 2008. I could be wrong though.
The weather threatened to ruin the festivities but it did not bother the spectators. Rain or shine, no one was moving away from his place, including us. I think this year is the most colorful samba festival I have seen. Lots of new acts and faces. Funny but it's very easy to notice the previous participants.

Tokyo, Japan – Teams of elaborately attired dancers shake their tail feathers to the beat of Samba, parading down the streets of Tokyo’s downtown Asakusa during an annual carnival on Saturday, August 31, 2013.

About 4,700 dancers in 19 teams performed under the scorching sun in the main street of Asakusa, Japan’s most famous tourists’ spot, before tens of thousands of spectators in the Asakusa Samba Carnival, the biggest of its kind in the country.
