Anime Antics at Mihama Manga Mega Expo

On Friday afternoon there was a small cos-play event in Mihama. I’ve shot much bigger gatherings in Tokyo and Kyoto, but anytime you get people dressing up as anime or manga characters there’s going to be some good photographic opportunities. It was bright and sunny at the time I was shooting so the main challenge was finding patches of open-shade that had a clean, uncluttered background.

  1. It must be unbearably hot there for Obon – yet these young people brave the heat in their loved costumes. The craze still amazes me. 🙂
