A raftsman (L), member of the Kiba 'kakunori' preservation society, falls down into the water from a floating square timber during his stunt with another member at a local festival in Tokyo on October 21, 2012. The stunt derived from lumberjacks' daily work in the Edo period (1603-1868), when they made rafts with fire-hooks in their hands standing on floating lumbers.
