I had a pleasure of helping the group of volunteers run this event, for the 2nd time. Last time, I enjoyed it so much I took a bit of initiatives in organising the setup and packing up on the day. This time, I was already expected to play the role, in an ‘official capacity’. It looked as though I was more involved in coordinating the staff of the main venue, rather than working as a photographer. But that was not to be an issue. Like last year, I expected there would be some photographers among the volunteers and organiser team, so I was not under pressure to capture everything by myself.
I had a late night the night before, when I invited close friends to a dinner at my place on my birthday weekend, so it was a bit tough on me to show up at 7:30am start. But with my sleepy eyes I managed to pull on the bright yellow happi (the traditional Japanese jacket, commonly used in festivals these days). My head was not quite working so well, nor was I well prepared on the details. But everyone there showed a lot of initiatives to run the show together. And given the level of thorough preparation Japaneasy has put in place, there was nothing that could really go wrong. Here are some of the photos from the day. I would really like to see the photos you took, if you were there. I’d love to see you comment on this page and/or Facebook page. On Facebook you can also tag yourself and people you know. That way you can let them know their photos are here. Please click ‘Like’ button on the right of this page before opening the Facebook page, though, as you need to like the page in order to interact. I look forward to seeing your comments!
The rest of the images are on Facebook page albums.
If you haven’t seen last year’s photos, they are here, too.
