Japan Matsuri in Geneva

Japan Matsuri in Geneva
Good morning world! :rabukuma:
It’s 5 o’clock in the morning and I’m already up. Getting up early isn’t and has never been a problem for me. I like watching the sunrise much more than the sunset but that’s not the main reason. :nope: Anyway, I’ve been studying Kanjis the whole day yesterday so this morning I felt like updating nekoblog and give you guys something to look at. :bling:

Although the car ride was kind of long (three hours..) it was totally worth it! I was amazed by all the beautiful Kimono and the many cute children. There were different performances like dancing, singing and even a traditional wedding to show the different Kimono styles. It was nice seeing new as well as well known faces and I didn’t know that there was such a big community of Japanese people in the French speaking part of Switzerland. I would love to write something about the food too but unfortunately I didn’t get to try a lot of it because the Ramen and Yakisoba was quickly sold out. But I tried some Gyoza which were so delicious! :miam:

Want to see more pictures? Read on~

Sorry for the huge picture spam.. :nyan: Have you spotted Asimo, the humanoid robot? It was the main attraction and there were so many people trying to take a glimpse at him. Silvankun likes robots and I think it was very interesting looking at one but despite his really cute appearance his movements had something slightly frightening.. :oh: As you probably noticed it’s really difficult for me to keep up with all the things I want to blog about because I have no time but I really want to make at least one entry a week! I hope you enjoyed the photos and I can’t wait to be back.
Have a sunny Sunday lovlies :on:

  2. I wish I was like you neko-chan. I am definitely *not* a morning person and struggle to get up at 7am let alone 5am!

    Great photos! It looks very interesting actually. Shame about them selling out quickly! I wasn’t aware that there were many Japanese in geneva either?

  3. great photos! that lady getting married (or maybe it was just a demo?) doesn’t look too happy though. lol
    thanks for sharing :)


  4. :hionigiri: I’ve been more active lately cause I am in preparation of moving to another country so currently not working at any jobs…just blogging and internet browsing a lot lately :)

    Always love picture spam from your blog!!!! You always share the greatest pictures!! Always love kimono but they are so hard to put on. I tried to help my friend put on her summer kimono (i think yukata is what she called it), I am already having trouble doing the ribbon part :b I really love the details of kimono and would love to try one on if I have a chance

  5. These are fabulous shots! Your layout is incredible and so interactive. Pure Awesome. Love the culture those kimonos.


  6. Wow those are awesome kimonos! I like the priestess one because it’s my first time seeing a ‘real’ version. I hope I could attend a real japanese festival too, one day. The long ride is definitely worth it. :)

  7. aww these are lovely photos. what event were these from? this is how the japan festival in berlin SHOULD be. instead it is usually just a giant anime convention with no japanese people at all. i was so disappointed when i went last year. will definitely not be going again. looks like such yummy food and i am not surprised it sold out so fast, haha!

    xx rae
