On Sunday I met the event organizers in Yoyogi park at noon. In the mere ten minutes it took me to walk from Harajuku station to the park I was stopped by three foreign people asking for information about the parade. No one seemed to know where it was, or when it would start.

She wasn't able to go to the parade, but she messaged me from Tottori to ask for my impressions. I told her that the most profound and inspiring thing about the parade was thesurprising diversity in the ethnicity, gender, and age of attendees.
For a different, and albeit, better, photographic perspective, I invite you to look at this website. As an apology to my readers, I've never been much of a photographer.
