The Chichibu Night Festival is one of the top three float festivals in Japan, was held on December 2 (Vigil) & 3 (Main Festival) / Chichibu Shrine area, Chichibu-shi, Saitama.

The dashi were incredible! Very beautiful and impressive, especially when passing each other in the street.
They nearly bump into each other, but pass by precariously. One of the two times, one of the met on the roof of the dashi was pushing the lamp post with his feet so that the dashi would not damage the lamp!
It is so high, too! The roof is as high as the 2nd-storey roof of the houses and stores on the street.
It is probably about 7 or 8 meters high!
