Tumblr Round-Up No. 2

Even though the Fundoshi 4 All tumblr has fallen by the wayside, I've been finding many other magnificent fundoshi-obsessed contributors on that site.

I thought you might like checking a few of them out too. If you enjoy these, I bet the authors would appreciate if you followed and re-posted them. If you don't have a tumblr, bookmark all of these – they're all worth watching! Which ones are you favorites?

Collect them all, after the jump!

The third Saturday in February (this year it was the 18th) is the annual observation of the Saidaiji Hadaka Matsuri (Naked Festival), which is probably the largest public occurence the fundoshi gets! Thousands of men dressed only in fundoshi and tabi socks participate, competing for good luck talismans in a festival known for its cold temperatures, abundant saki consumption, and physical danger.

While current photos of the actual event seem in short supply, here are some images from various Naked Festivals as well as other Shinto-related ceremonies held throughout Japan over the past few years, to give readers a taste of the fundoshi's role in Shinto:
