Catching up on September #2: The busy partWednesday, 30 September 2009
September in Tokyo is the festival season, almost every weekend you'd bump into one or two matsuri (festival) that are held at the shrines here and there. I love the lights and the smell of the matsuri, always reminds me of the excitement and the "doki-doki" feelings I used to have there when I was a child. Talking about the festival, I did go to the Vietnam Festival in Yoyogi as I mentioned here before. Well it was bit of a disappointment, and there's not much to say about it.
The third photo is from the crazy Shibuya crossing I took during the day. I don't go to Shibuya unless I have to which normally doesn't happen so often, but I don't know how many times I went in September, many many times! One day I overheard an American tourist murmur in the exhausted voice "Oh I don't know, but Tokyo seems a little too crowded. *sigh*", I felt exactly the same but at the same time I felt sorry for him and hoped that he got to see the better parts of Tokyo.
Oh and here is a good memory of September from last year, my darling little neice at the local matsuri ;)
