The Fukuoka Softbank Hawks took to the streets of Fukuoka on December 11, 2011 to celebrate winning the Nippon Series. I braved the crowds but felt the caravan moved to fast. It was over as quickly as it started. I did manage to observe the posts-parade clean-up which was efficient and had traffice back to normal within minutes.
Don’t you always wonder how your neighbors are like? In a tightly laid-out place like Japan in particular, knowing who lives next to you is of utmost importance. So I find it nice to see things like this to let me know that I live next to a rock-n-roll lover, or at least one who does not know what else to do with a damaged distortion pedal.
It looks like this weekend will be the best one for hanami parties. Grab your mats (doesn’t have to be blue) and reserve your spot tonight! Photo was taken last year in Maizuru Park.
