After watching an event like this it is hard to remember all the different floats and participants. Looking back on these photos I felt like I had seen the event twice.
Which photo or scene above did you like the most? My favorites are #1, #17 and #29

RT @Shibuya246: Tokyo 2016 Olympic Parade, Japan Photo-Post | Shibuya246 http://bt.io/EP3 All the photos are great, Tokyo Ganbaette !
My faves are # 34 #36 and # 39. Photo # 28 looks like she is talking on her cell phone, but at further review, it’s just the way her hand is placed on her face. All the great sights and sounds, a great time for all that participated.
That would be funny. No talking on your cell phone when driving your whistle
Amazing colors… Not to say that every single person is smiling and enjoying the moment.
In #20 only one person is holding that?…they are lucky to do that event in a windless day… 😛
In #28 she looks like “Oh, why he is taking photos of me?, maybe he likes me” (and scratch her face like a moe embarrassed character) ^^;
Definetly my fav is the #29…
yes, I like the depth in #29
Great photos. I really hope Tokyo wins the Olympics bid!
Great photos AGAIN. Thanks for letting us in “Japan”. Another amazing experience felt like I was there. Well one day haha
Thanks for compliment, and also for comment. Am hoping to create more of a community feel by having more comments and also maybe members posts. Always nice to hear from you.
great photos! it will be interesting to see if japan wins, how will cosplay fit into the Olympics. (‘~’)
I agree. If Japan does win, will the opening ceremony feature some famous anime characters, cosplay, manga ? Could be fun to watch. Who decides which ones to pick?
They’ll probably pick the best known ones -> Naruto, Bleach characters, Hatsune Miku………….and I’m hoping Haruhi.
My favorite is #5, nothing beats a Hatsune Miku cosplay^^ But #39 was particularly amusing because of the guys in the front, I won’t blame them though, I’d probably stand right there myself if I had the chance!
yes, there were plenty of semi-receding foreheads checking out the skirts ^^
Wow… The Picture so beautiful..
I… So Interesting Japanese Culture^^
A lot of beautiful photos!! I like them so much^-^
Japanese traditional culture is fantastic.
But I think there is another interesting culture in Japan ….
It is PACHINKO!! PACHINKO is a NEW sightseeing spot!
It’s like casino but more casual one.
