Festival Night

Women in traditional dress dance in the streets of Yatsuo, Toyama, Japan, a town approximately 300 miles southwest of Tokyo. Every year, Yatsuo hosts a three-day harvest festival called Kaze no Bon. Held at night, the festival features both male and female dancers wearing kimonos and hats, and performing to music. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
