This crew wasn't particularly skilled at carrying their shrine...

During summer there are festivals where men (women aren't allowed to help) carry portable shrines, called mikoshi, around town.  The women carry lanterns and banners but cannot touch the shrine.  It might be because dropping mikoshi is forbidden and they are afraid women are too weak to carry something so heavy, but that's just speculation.  These guys were swerving like a drunken beast and almost dropped it in the middle of the main intersection along the route.
