Yamaga Toro Roman Festival
Not to be confused with the summer lantern festival, the Toro Roman (灯籠浪漫) festival is a welcome burst of colour and winter warmth in the old town of Yamaga, Kumamoto prefecture.
More of the same after the jump!
And at a shrine behind the main streets, the atmosphere was breathtaking.
