Back to Tokyo and Kyoto-Preview

Tokyo, Japan

Having returned from Gunma, Marion wanted to see the Harajuku cosplayers and the Meiji-shrine, so that was our next destination.

Happened to be the time for the Super Yosakoi 2010, a festival sponsored by Volkswagen that features massive groups of dancers/performers with impressive music competing for the first place.

The synchronous movements were really impressive and I would have liked to see more of it. Marion was disappointed because there were no cosplayers today, though.

Here a video of a past performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KFap64g4vs

At Yoyogi-park a group of other dancers assembled, living the American spirit or imitating Elvis, I am not sure what they did exactly. They had music running and Twisted and rocked to it. Many of them had tattoos, which is pretty uncommon in Japan, except for Yakuza.

My camera finally died for good then, pictures from here on were either taken by Marion or by me in the past.

You already know Meiji-shrine, so nothing to talk about here.

Went home, packed and prepared for the next five nights in Kyoto, the last ones of this journey.

So long and stay tuned,
