Some Scenes from the Aoba Festival of Sendai

This is old, old footage taken before I had a video camera. I shot these scenes with a digital photocamera so they're very low-res. So watch it in HQ.

Anyway, these are some scenes from the first day of the Aoba Festival in Sendai which is several hundred miles north of Tokyo in the Tohoku region.

The festival celebrates the founder of the city - Date Masamune who was a warlord from the 16th-17th Century.
