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.


  1. Those platform sandals look like they would be hard to walk in.

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

  3. Socks and flip flops....:)

  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.

  6. Cool costumes! I can imagine that the parades were very interesting!!


I love comments!
