03 | Tokyo | Ginza Parade

Flag JapanGinza Parade

Driving from the Tokyo Station towards the shopping district Ginza, we saw a huge crowd and wondered what was going on. The timing couldn’t have been better, as the opening ceremony of the 2017 Ginza Parade was just about to begin. We spent a good hour watching the different groups, bands and cartoon characters marching past, until we became hungry and decided to find something to munch on. Judging by the groups gathered in the side streets, the parade would go on for quite a while.
