Hakata Dontaku Festival

A other big event in Golden week is Dontaku. The name Dontaku comes from the dutch word ‘Zondag’ and means ‘sunday’ or ‘holiday’. It just basicly means that people dress themself up in strange cloths and the parade true the streets of Hakata. This festival is more then 800 years old. Every year more then 2 million people come to Hakata to see this big parade, that takes up more then 5 hours in total.  at the end I had more then 2000 pic. I deleted a lot of them but I still have a bunch.
