Kanamara Matsuri

Every year, a little town in Kawasaki gets together to celebrate penises. I think it’s a pretty healthy thing. It was hard not to giggle at the theme, and there was also a pretty strong trans/gay-friendly undercurrent going on, with more crossdressing and open queer people than you usually catch in Tokyo.

Me, Alix, and the Girls

I took a bunch of photos, and I’m really happy with the way they turned out. There are a bunch more on Flickr, but to get a sense of the scale and chaos of the festival, I’d advise looking at the slideshow full-screen.
