Seattle Bon Odori

Last weekend I spent some time flaneuring at this annual Japanese street dance, "in which we honor our ancestors who have passed on, remember and appreciate all they have done for us, and celebrate their ongoing presence in the lives we enjoy today." Quite a spectacle of kimono patterns and more contemporary Asian fashion, with models of all ages. Plus Taiko drumming!

There was also a hall of various arts and crafts, Go players, and ikebana. And I couldn't resist the alley.
