Dogs In Kimonos
You can’t help but throw your head back and laugh in amazement when fifteen dogs parade by, dressed in Japanese formalwear. In honor of Hina Matsuri (the doll festival that happens every year at the beginning of March) the local Husky club turned up in Yoyogi Park yesterday all decked out in kimonos.
I’ve seen this club before, and one of the great regrets of my life is that I didn’t have a camera on Halloween, when they all wore superhero costumes, with capes.
