Foreign Friday

Autumn Festival
Misawa, Japan
August 1979
The Japanese love parades and festivals, and I enjoyed capturing the elaborate processions on film. Notice the different footwear of the three gentlemen in the procession.

  2. Considering that I turned my ankle earlier this morning just standing up... those platforms look scary!

  4. I love the costumes! They certainly have a knack for color. I think the idea for the extremely high platform heels we see today came from the shoes in the picture!

  5. I always enjoy your Friday photos. Have you read The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet? If not, I think you might enjoy it.
