Asakusa Samba Carnival Summer 2009

I never quite understood it, but each year during summer, the famous Japanese city of Asakusa, known to tourists as the easiest place to experience Japanese culture in Tokyo, held a samba parade competition, where various groups (probably with Brazilian-Japanese roots) would parade with their best group-dance routines and costumes (or lack of) to impress the judge, and the gazillions of local tourists flooding the streets.

This year, the Asakusa Samba Carnival was held last Saturday, and I got nothing better to fill my boring weekend.

My apartment is just an hour train ride to Asakusa, so I thought, why not go and see some hot Brazilian and Japanese chicks dancing half naked on the streets during bright day light eh?

Here I want to express my utmost gratification to all of the genius Brazilians who created this Samba Culture in the first place and brought it to Japan.

A wonderful Brazilian culture that made it OK for Japanese girls to dress up in thongs and parade it for everyone to see, for free!

And you can take pictures and not get into trouble with the police!
