Matsuri (Festival) is a time of celebration: fun, joy, victorious and glory.
Doesn't this picture remind you something that you are familiar with?
2Samuel6:14-15, David, wearing a linen ephod, danced before the Lord with all his might, while he and the entire house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of trumpets. The bible told us that was a grand occasion. It is about the return of the ark of God with His people.
Would it be the similarity of this account of bible event with matsuri, a tail of what the Creator had left for His people as a trail to salvation?
Who will speak to them, of this host of celebration which they had celebrated for thousand years?
