Kigirumi 2009 Summit



Despite being ill I attended the extremely fun Yurukyara festival in Hikone a couple of weeks ago. Hikonyan pictured above was the undeniable star of the event almost causing a riot when he was driven along the street. There were around 150 other characters representing other castles, prefectures, bridges and even roads. To find out what Kigirumi and Yurukyara mean check out this Japan times article and to see the event watch this video.

  • Hey – Hikonyan is a viking! Or is it samurai..? I do hope the latter – vikings are never cute!

  • Definitely a Samurai, is a Samurai cuter than a Viking?
