Happy Halloween 2014!! Shimokitazawa,Tokyo


Recently Halloween became one of big event of the year in Japan.
When Halloween day gets closer,shops begin selling Halloween goods.
During my childhood,it was not.
I don’t know when it began.

Last year,I participated in Halloween parade held at Shimokitazawa,Setagaya-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.

There is variety of shops at Shimokitazawa. For example,fashion,antique,food,and so on. So,Shimokitazawa is very popular among the young people.I’ll introduce Shimokitazawa next time.There is an interesting place.

The parade started from starting place,and finished the same place.
Starting(finishing) place was lightened up.
So there was easy to take photos.
During parade,they were walking,and dark,photos were tend to blur.

I enjoyed taking photos very much!
At first,I was a little tense.
But participants were so friendly!
If you take photos well,you should talk to participants.
They will take poses willingly.

I appreciate for participants to have permitted taking photos.
All of participants were cool and cute and funny!
I’ll take photos this year!
And I might try cosplay!

*If you want to walk in parade,you have to buy ticket.
