A man carries a mikoshi, or portable shrine, during the 66th Annual Fussa Tanabata Festival at Fussa City, Japan, Aug. 5, 2016. Traditionally, the mikoshi were believed to carry Shinto gods through the city, cleansing the streets of evil spirits. Today, mikoshi represent collectivity and the overcoming of hardships.
