Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” Itasha

Kumafes Report,  Part 1

A series of Kumafes starts today.  Kumafes is a manga, anime and pop culture festival in Kumamoto, Japan.   It was the first time this event has taken place on December 2nd.   ” Grand 12″  organized it.   Grand12 is  working to make Kumamoto a famous mecca for manga.   That’s a good idea!

Unfortunately, it was a very cold rainy day.   First,  I saw Itashas(痛車).    Itasha is a car decorated with cute anime, manga or game characters.   This was the second time that I saw Itasha this year.   The first one was Toyota’s  Itashas for its promotion in September.   Toyota Itasha    This time,  these were anime fans’ cars.

Decorated bicycles (痛自転車) were covered with plastic sheets to protect from the rain.    There are more photos on my Facebook page.   Please check it .    Facebook Happy Yuan     I would appreciate it if you would give a like to my page.

The next post will be about a hilarious dance.   I hope you look forward to reading it!
