Participants carrying a portable shrine get drenched in Tokyo’s Fukagawa Hachiman Festival on August 13, 2017. The liberal dousing of teams with water by spectators is all part of the traditional summer fun at this event, also known as the mizukake matsuri (water-splashing festival). It continues until August 15. (© Jiji)
