St. Patty's Day

A few weeks ago I went to a St. Patrick's Day in Yokohama, near Tokyo. They had a parade and lots of people giving out stickers and green balloons and people dressed up as cartoon characters! It wasn't so much Irish as it was just a big gathering of foreigners in Japan, but fun nonetheless. They had some of the military bands and dance classes and baton throwers (probably students from the international schools in Tokyo). It was a pretty short parade, even shorter than the ones in Round Lake for Sun and Fun Days haha!!! After we went to an Irish bar. It was a good time to catch up with some of the teachers around here that I don't see as often because they live a bit further away.

In our St. Patty's Day get-ups!

A mixing of Japanese and Irish Culture?
