The Tokyo St. Patrick's Day Parade

POST #    2446

While in Tokyo, we caught the local St. Patricks' Day parade. It was similar, yet different from the parade in New York. Similar - lots of green. Different - not too many drunk people, not too many Irish people, no members of a fire department or police department, no controversy over the exclusion of gays/lesbians. Also odd, the parade goes up and down on Omotesandō (a street) in Harajuku. For New Yorkers, imagine a parade that starts on 34th and Park, goes north to 42nd, and turns around the median to go south on Park.
