Tairyo-bata ( Big Catch Flag )

Bay area of funabashi prospered as fisherman town.
And funabashi fishing port still works in deep inside of Tokyo bay.
"Tairyo-bata , 大漁旗" literally means big catch ( fish ) flag.
Today, festival of Yatsurugi shrine started.
Towns near the fishing port join the festival.
Many of those flags were set along river side and on bridges.

Each flag is really beautyful and richly decorated; And each adds a touch of color in the town,and I like the little mermaid!
