Low suspensions

When I saw this car I immediately thought of Ramone:
Flo: Well, then let's cruise, baby.
Ramone: Low and slow.

Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival

Sumidagawa Fireworks Festival (隅田川花火大会) is one of the biggest fireworks event in Japan, if not the biggest.
This year the fireworks were dwarfed by the Tokyo Sky Tree. It was very nice seeing how "small" the fireworks looked compared to the 634 meter tall tower.

Do you see the helicopter?

Sky Tree & Super Moon

The angle for this picture was not the best one, but it was nice to have the super moon together with the lit up Tokyo Sky Tree.

Takaoka Mikurumayama Matsuri

During the Takaoka Mikurumayama Matsuri, 7 richly adorned Mikurumayama (御車山, floats) are drawn solemnly around the city according to the ancient customs. 
It seems that only the boys are allowed to board the floats, and only the ones belonging to the families of the owners. Judging from their faces, though, they did not really seem very happy.

ItaRian once more

The funny thing is that, according to google, there are 63 web pages in Japan (and little bit less than 50'000 in the world!) using the same spelling...

Tokyo Marathon 2012 - the craziest event ever!!!

I could not believe my eyes when I saw so many people dressed up for the event. There was even a bare-foot Jesus Christ running with a full size wooden cross on his shoulders!!!

Here he is! Can you see the cross?
