Festival Fantasy

Last week I did go to the festival that I mentioned last week. Along with half of Tokyo. The place was seriously crowded, but it was still a lot of fun! Saw the decorations, tried some of the food from the food stands and saw the lanterns float on the water down-river.

The decorations for the festivals are surprisingly elaborate for the few days they stay up, which surprised me. It's really great! The food at the stalls are also really good, but a bit more expensive than food you would find at other places.

I also went to the Square Enix offices and their shop nearby my school. I ended up buying a small Tonberry plushie as well. Inside the store they had a lot of stuff like soundtracks, games, plushies, food (as it was like a cafĂ© in a small portion of it) and figures. It's been a pretty good week, and if you want to see even more of the pictures you can find them on my tumblr.


  1. Crowds are scary tho, don't you think? Love the temple photos! (:

  2. Oh hell yeah I used to think so. I'd be scared to go out buying groceries in Norway. It's part of why I love Japan, it helped me overcome my fear of crowded places. In my case it really has helped me come out of my "hide from everyone" lifestyle.
