I went to the Noge Street Festival today (Noge is in Yokohama city). It's a great way to kick off Golden Week.
What's everyone looking at?
Oh, it's the Chinese acrobat doing hand stands on a stack of chairs.
Now lets put it into perspective. This girl is awesome!
The chairs are not solidly connected to each other, they're just stacked one on another.
Her manager told the crowd that if there had been any wind today she wouldn't have been able to stack the chairs so high.
It's hula-hoop girl!
The portable shrine girl clown.
The streets were lined with people cooking and selling food.
This girl was selling High Balls, I'll take two!
Corn on the cob and squid, goes together like... hmmm.
Grilled mushrooms, yummy!
These two girls were selling draft beer.
Everyone is happy today.
Even Carrot Top showed up.
More grilled fish, get it while it's hot.
Dancing girls! It wouldn't be a street festival without belly dancers.
I think she just winked at me.
This guy has the right idea - get drunk, it's a party!
This clown was making animals out of balloons for children.
Party crasher - looks like trouble.
Donations are always welcome
Another pretty face in the crowd. That's the party crasher behind her, he's on stilts.
The Noge Street Festival will continue tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be there!
Thanks for stopping by!
