Shinjuku Eisa Matsuri

I got back to the hotel kind of late today, so i'm just gonna post the link to all the photos i took today of the Shinjuku Eisa Matsuri at my Picasa Account

I also went to Tokyo Character Street in the morning. Didn't buy too much, because don't wanna carry it to Hong Kong and back to Tokyo. So gonna wait to buy the rest of the Gintama and Jump merchandise that i have been eyeing :D

The Shinjuku Eisa Matsuri is basically a street festival where different groups perform traditional Okinawan music. The main instrument of these performances was drum. I love the strong, powerful, raw, beating sounds of drums. So i definitely found this matsuri to be a treat :D

The performances were divided into two periods. The first period ran from 1:30pm to 4:00pm in various streets of Shinjuku, where the second period ran from around 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
I wanted to go see the second period performances, but i was too lazy to use a map, so i just followed one of the performance groups that were walking to the performance area. In their costumes, with instruments and all, they walked through Kabuki-cho.

Kabukicho in the evening is filled with so many hosts. I think they may look slightly better than Sapporo ones XD. But it's just funny how the drum group lead me through all those host/hostess clubs to get to their destination.

I would like to write more about today, but it's late, and i need to sleep...orz....

PREVIEW: Tomorrow may be going to Asakusa for souvenir shopping. My mom likes buying kokeshi dolls.
