Yesterday was the closing event of Jak-Japan Matsuri at Monas, this was my second time coming to the event.
as usual there were omikoshi, kakigouri, cosplayers, and Japanese lolis
something we never see outside the event:
there were some cosplayers at the event, and at honda booth, they hired some cute cosplayers to promote their bikes… 🙂
even the MC looks like duke nukem without any make up 🙂
if you ignore the heat, it’s actually nice to walk around at monas taking photos of cosplayers
and some lolis…
so night came, and when i was running around shooting this loli…
JKT48 performed that night, so the place was crowded with JKT48 fans,
look at those words :))
was that supposed to be somekind of… road mark? err.. camp? lol
these shot was taken far from the stage and before the show, so it wasn’t really crowded there, but from what i’ve heard from my friends at the front, the seating in front of the stage was totally crowded.
i think i heard the staff said something like “please remain sitting and stay in order or the performance will be cancelled”
so until the show started i just looked around, taking photos
some people did some sparring with wooden sword. i pretty much enjoyed watching the sparring
so the show started, and i was watching from behind the shop with my friends…
started with ponytail to shushu, heavy rotation, aitakatta, then the “youngboys” went out (oh the show was called Young boys feat. JKT48 btw)
and these young boys were really great, the group consist of 3 young boys, playing instruments, but there were around 10 or more music instruments on the stage, and they running around play the instruments in harmony. lol, they’re good.
then the last time, JKT48 appeared again in YUKATA!! YUKATA!!! and they sang
Kimi no Koto ga Suki dakara remixed by young boys. i can say this performance is the best performed by JKT48 so far.
actually it will be better if the song was “Boku no uchiage hanabi”, because we were having some hanabi show after that….
so, the situation at the back was under control during the show, and the front seating was crowded with fans, but i think the event went out smoothly, eventhough during the day there were so many “found and lost” announcements. wallets, mobile phones, even lost kids…
well, it was fun yesterday.
