A few shots from today’s Sakura Matsuri in Washington, DC
Sakura Matsuri photos that aren’t of cosplay or anime merch? Thank you! (Because there’s a HELL of a lot more to Japanese culture than anime, manga, and lolita fashion, kids.)
Ugh, why do people treat Sakura Matsuri like it’s an outdoor anime con? There’s a lot more to Japanese culture than anime and manga. :-/
More mizuhiki art from Sakura Matsuri in DC. (I really wish I’d brought a real camera to the festival; a cell phone pic doesn’t quite do this display justice.)
Saw this at Sakura Matsuri in DC today. It’s a dragon made of mizuhiki (Japanese paper cords). Seriously cool.
