Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” Cosplay

Kumafes Final Report

Finally, this is the last post of the series.   It took longer than I expected to finish the reports.  The final report is about cosplay.   Many cosplayers gathered in Kumamoto Castle.    Cosplayers dressed up in the costumes of their favorite anime heroes and heroines.   I could take only this photo on a street because I couldn’t get in to the event area.  What did he intend to cosplay as?

I found another cosplayer’s photo on Yue’s photozou.   This is cool.   The background is the stonewall of the castle.   There are more photos on Cosplay at Kumafes

This is just a aside note.   A conspicuous car was running in front of me yesterday.  The car is owned by the locally famous confectionery company.  Is it Itasha too?

Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” One Piece

Kumafes Report,  Part 2

After seeing the Itashas, I went to a dance show.   There were several dance performances on the stage.   The first performer was “Grand 12Gradan” dressing up (cosplay) as the characters of  “One Piece”.   One Piece is a very popular cartoon in Japan.

The Mecca “Akihabara”

Tokyo Trip Report, Part 5

Do you remember my post about Ikebukuro?  I wrote that Ikebukuro is the Mecca of female anime fans.  On the other hand, Akihabara also seems to be the Mecca of male anime fans.  So, we went to Akihabara too.  At first, we visited Tokyo Anime Center.

It was boring (- _-;)

As soon as my daughter found the Animate shop, she rushed into it.  My son and I had to wait for a long time before she came out ! (>_<)

During that time, we went for a walk around there.   A flea market was being held.  Many anime-related goods were displayed.

What a curious sight!  Rickshaws were running around the areas.

Anime characters were printed on the back of the rickshaws.

The colorful cars in a line.

To be concluded.

I Changed My Blog Theme

I may get bored easily.   I felt like changing something.     The themes WordPress has are not enough.     There might be more if I were able to customize.   I finally found this lovebirds.   How do you like it?   As a profile photo, I decided to use Japanese face mark.   Previous photo,  Kumamon is enough famous already.   He doesn’t need my help to enhance his visibility.  lol  I’d like to spread Japanese face mark from now.   Color is yellow.  Japanese is belong to the yellow race.  However our skin is not yellow like this!

I Unexpectedly Met Kumamon!

When I went downtown, I unexpectedly met Kumamon.  He was performing in an event.   I saw real Kumamon for the first time.  Kumamon is a publicity character created to aim at vitalizing and boosting this area economy.   He is very popular here.
