"Awa Odori" in Koenji is one of the most famous festivals here in Tokyo every year. It starts at night, so it was a first hard test for my new GH1. Shooting just with the kit lens ( 14-140 mm ) at fixed ISO 1600. Not really the fastest lens for that purpose ;-))
Hope, it is still watchable and everybody enjoys watching these people dancing and celebrating the "Awa odori", even it was raining so hardly that day.
