Recently went to visit my parents in Japan, and saw loads of people dressed up and many bands playing on the street. It was a great experience.

He was a nutter! Jumping around kicking instruments, I've got several shots of him doing his thing. He's the most energetic person I've ever seen playing music.

Where were you at? I don't remember this much excitement when I was there, I will be back in Japan in December and need to see all this too. Nice shots of the street life!

oooops. I meant #6.

You must have been confused by my comment. Is he playing a chime with his knee? Can you describe the music that they were playing please?

Yeh this was my own fault. It was very busy when i was there so trying to grab a shot inbetween people walking past was hard at times, some of them I rushed but others I got in focus, quite pleased with how sharp they were too when I did get it right.

It was indeed! She was a great singer, infact she was so good, some people in the crowd watching her had a tear in their eye. I was amazed that someone as good as her was singing on a street and not on a radio.
