Photo Journal: Muddy mayhem

Performers fall around in a muddy field on the grounds of Mishima Shrine in the city of Seiyo in Ehime Prefecture, on July 2, 2017. The performance was part of the "Doronko Matsuri" mud festival, at which people pray for good health, as well as a plentiful harvest. At this year's festival, an announcer who was in the midst of a live radio broadcast ended up being pushed into the field, drawing cheers from a crowd of onlookers. (Mainichi)
