Video of a matsuri at Yoshiwara Jinja in Tokyo, with devotees parading a mikoshi around the neighbourhood.

Yoshiwara Jinja Matsuri

Explanation: Jinja = shrine / Matsuri = festival / Mikoshi = portable shrine.

Many places across Japan have similar parades. Usually only men would carry the mikoshi, it’s probably because of the weight instead of strict custom. And in this video we can see women carrying it too.

Also, foxes are some sort of guardians in some Japanese shrines, hence the masks. The animal appears as magical in many folklore, although some are evil.
