Rainbow festival in Ni Chome is next Sunday, August 12

Here’s the poster for next Sunday’s Shinjuku Ni Chome festival. It’s kind of ridiculous that I couldn’t find a larger image online. Although brief, from 3 pm to 6 pm, this bar-organized festival combines day-time socializing, some rituals including lesbian shrine-carrying, and an excuse to stroll around in your yukata. Who’s coming?

“Hey Dad, can you help me”

Who knew you could offend the Catholic Church in just 10 seconds? And just in time for Easter Sunday, my favorite Jesus holiday. I also heard that Lady Gaga will be releasing her video single Judas on that special day!
