Yesterday friends and I went to a Halloween party at the Foreign Correspondents' Club. It was quite a party - I dressed as a Tengu with a long nose and wings and was unusually popular. Not much chance to "network" with expats, as I spent almost every moment being photographed with a Japanese person. Had fun in any case.
Our costumes, mine the silliest. Sachi is the one drinking, and Etsuro is on the far right |
Today I went to the Edo festival in the center of the city. There were several floats like this one, along with dancers and jugglers.
