No...


Not in Japan... these are not from Akita or Tokyo or Kyoto.

These guys participated in a fiesta parade, and to promote a newly opened Japanese technology company here in Cebu, and well, probably for fun... Hmmmnnn. Looking at their faces, they're way too serious for the parade. Hahahaha! But during the event, it was different... they were all smiling. Perhaps they don't feel comfortable wearing layered yukatas under the unforgiving tropical sun. I think i captured the wrong moment?
