Weekend in Ginza is shoppers paradise as the streets were closed for pedestrians to walk. Summer specially is great to hang out there even you don’t do much shopping. Just roaming around you would discover many interesting things happening. Last weekend, I saw a ground of women dressed in Kimono and walked there, and found out they are from Oedo Wagami Gakkai (A society of Japanese Traditional Hairstyle in Edo perido). They do this once a month to promote their school in East Ginza and everyone can join the class, the fee is ¥1000 and on second Saturday every month. For everyone that is interested in traditional hairstyle akeup, you can definitely go check it out.
It was a was freezing cold January morning in Tokyo, nearly fifty people gathered at a shrine wearing only shorts or loincloths and pour icy cold water over themselves to purify their souls and wish for good health in the new year. It is a traditional ceremony held annually and this really put participants endurance into a test.
