Japan Matsuri London 2011 - Part 1

Last Sunday the Japan Matsuri 2011 was held in London : the perfect excuse for me to drive up there and spend a weekend in London.

This year the event was held at County Hall , right next to the Thames : the weather was fine, and the event was drawing a crowd , right from the start.

At the opening ceremony, the ambassador of Japan.

I can't read Japanese, but that has to be a ceremonial barrel of sake.

Everyone's having fun while getting ready for the cracking of the barrel.

Ready ? One, two , three, CRACK....
