After several intense waves of toy coverage, I thought it might be a nice time to take a short stroll down a cultural by-way. The other day while biking home - mama chari basket full of Kirin, Yebisu, and assorted sundry (yeah, I was doin the drywall over at the new McDon- wait wrong movie) - I spotted a proper shin dig at the Shinmei-gu shrine in Asagaya.
local dance troupe.
So I parked old split butt (bike seat's all torn up) and wandered over to check it out. The festival was complete with food, drink, drink, some more drink, and a local Bali style dance troupe.
|Really nice turn out for the event. You might recognize the shrine as the back drop for my review of Miles Nielsen's Shishi.|
Back to the event:
|Lots of festive outfits.|
|Plenty of folks were just hanging out.|
|The person in front of me was about to dive into this.|
|I think she was taking a cell phone pic of her beer.|
|Shopping time - batik style.|
|Such a nice stage.|
|You can always count on spotting some serious photography gear in Japan.|
