St. Pattie's Day Parade


Surprisingly enough there are quite a few ways to celebrate St. Pattie's Day in Japan. We had our choice of parades and festivals in Tokyo and Yokohama. Grandma and Grandpa took the kiddos to the Omotesando  last year so I thought I'd check out a new one and headed ot the Motomachi parade.

We met up with a couple friends decked out in green along the way. We arrived just as the parade was about to begin and found perfect seats along the road.


Group after group marched by with Irish affiliations ranging from pubs to dogs.


EJ squealed with excitement when she saw her reason for coming. The Irish dancers.


She was treated to a nice long Irish jig.



After the parade was over the kids were kept busy taking pictures with the Japanese spectators. I guess blond haired kids decked in green are just the picture they want.
