Tokyo Pride Parade: Saturday, August 14 at 10.30 am

Saturday, August 14 is the Tokyo Pride Parade. It starts at 10.30 am. There’s lots of info in Japanese, and some basic info in English. It’s shocking to read that they expect 5,000 participants in this megalopolis of 13 million (or 30 or 51 million, depending how you count the greater Tokyo region).

Are any of my readers planning to attend?

Bring sun block, water, and a hand towel. It’s going to be hot!
