More Dated Festivities ~

This is from the Waseda school festival. A lot more famous, and just generally bigger than the one posted below. Happened around the same time.
Apparently a lot of celebrities attend, but since I'm not up to date on my Japanese celebrities, I'm not sure whether I actually saw any...

The Model U.N. protecting member nations from giant octopodes for generations.

Rokurokubi (ろくろくび)or Long-Necked Woman, some kind of Japanese monster. Not quite sure where the terror is.

All of a sudden I felt a slightly unnerved...

Some deep-fried icecream, with strawberry sauce and chocolate sprinkling. You are jealous. This is a fact.

It's been a while...

These were taken at Toyo's school festival, which I'm pretty sure was sometime before Hallowe'en...

There were a shit load of food stalls, this particular one is takoyaki

There were also a shitload of people, but I think I'd gotten over the population density at that stage.

Obviously being in Japan there's going to be a Pikachu wandering around.

The Elmo came as more of a surprise.

And of course an obsequious monkey.
