Heroic warlord dolls floating in the midsummer twilight

In the festival of Akiba Shrine, which boasts more than 230 years of history and is usually held every year on the last Saturday in July and the day after, young men dance to music played on flutes and drums while each carries on his shoulders a papier-mâché warrior doll called a "mando," each of which is finely crafted out of bamboo and Japanese paper, and is about 5 m tall and 60 kg in weight.

Flames are lit in the mandos, and the sight of them floating in the midsummer twilight is a truly epic one that utterly captivates all who see it.
