This 4.5 meter high #straw #sandal was #woven by 800 citizens from the northern city of #murayama, #japan, who went as far as growing the rice straw especially for its creation. The straw sandal (#waraji) was apparently common footwear as far back as the 9th century, and over time it began to be offered as a symbol for good luck and safe travels. Despite its size however, it isn't the largest. #fukushima city holds a Waraji Festival every August and is said to rival Murayama's giant sandal output. Here, a race takes place between two teams who shoulder the ton-heavy sandals through the city. The winner gets displayed outside a local shrine. - - #lookup #lookaround #lonelyplanet #photooftheday #vsco #handmade #artesanal #japanese #japangram #instajapan #instatokyo #日本 #travellog #travelbug  #exploremore #temple #matador #travelculture #culturetrip #culturevulture #projectwanderlust #япония #токио
