A wandering Saturday

My sweet cousin visited Tokyo a few weeks ago and we were able to take her around a bit. First we went to a park in Hiroo.

Then we went into Yoyogi Park where these people were practicing a play.DSC02128

 

There was a music festival happening across the street, so we stopped over there too. This is Japan’s version of a booth babe. (She had tiny jean shorts on with her kimono crop top.)DSC02133

 

Back in the park, these people were practicing a dance that included high fives.DSC02146

And this fine fellow really wanted someone to take his picture.DSC02148

This guy was creating art by slicing out shapes from the white paper with an exacto knife, while playing techno. It was fantastic.DSC02153
