Wedding in Yoyogi Park
As we were watching the children in their kimonos, we were told to step aside as there was a wedding procession coming through. We were so lucky to see it and I actually got quite emotional watching it. It was such a sombre, serene affair. I had never seen an outfit like that before and all the guests were wearing black. We went round the back afterwards and watched them having a group photo done. It was like any wedding around the world where the photographer is fussing around getting everyone in the right position and stressing about it all looking right. At one point he asked one of the male guests to stand up so that he could pull his trousers and straighten them, with the crease at the front.
