Ginza 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.


With the Ginza Parade still in full swing, we decided to stroll around Ginza while the other people watched the show. Ginza is an upscale shopping district with shops and cafés, in one oh which we eventually settled to drink matcha tea and charge our phones.
