Festival Goes On in Japan

In spite of the earthquake that claimed thousands of lives and created a scary nuclear situation, a festival that has been held in Fukushima for a thousand years goes on. Though at a smaller scale. The Soma Nomaoi festival celebrates the way of the samurai. It was originally secret military exercises but transformed into a festival to remember. This year there were only 80 participants and the festival was dedicated to all who have suffered from the earthquake.
