Participants dressed in women's kimonos and wearing makeup attend the Ikazuchi no Daihannya festival on February 22, 2015 in Tokyo, Japan. Festival volunteers carry 6 containers from the Shinzoin Temple around the neighborhood to chase away evil spirits. The festival origins are uncertain; one legend tells of an Edo era priest from Shinzoin Temple visiting house by house to chase away evil spirits when cholera was rife in Tokyo, and another legend describes a man dressed in a women's kimono to drive away evils spirits from his sister who was suffering from tuberculosis.
