This festival was started just last year, “to backup the contents industry, an industry which has gained potential with the development of digital technology.”
You can enjoy the festival from your PC where ever you might be living!
The parade is on this Sunday, October 30th starting from noon at Hibiya Park, Ginza.
It is a great chance to see mikoshi traditional dance and music.
The 18th Tokyo International Film Festival opened yesterday.

I headed over to Yoyogi Park today for the Sri Lanka festival. It is not as big as the Thai festival that was held earlier in the year but there was still some good curries and samosa to eat.
Last night I went to a friends party at Obi Lounge in Shibuya. I added a picture of the bar to the nightclub section. It is a great space if you want to have a party, with great food at a reasonable price. The entrance is just a little hard to find amongst all of the love hotels in Dogenzaka, Shibuya.
Almost every week there seems to be some ethnic festival happening in Tokyo. This coming weekend happens to be Sri Lanka’s turn.
It takes place this weekend October 15-16th in Yoyogi Park. See the embassy’s website for further details:
