Zombies in Tokyo!!! Zombie Walk in Tokyo



Zombies invade Tokyo - kind of. While in Yoyogi Park in Harajuku  I ran across a small horde of zombies actually more like six. They were part the Tokyo Zombie Walk put on by Zombiena, a Tokyo-based zombie performance group. Unfortunately the turn-out was quite small but 2 of the zombies who weren't part of Zombiena became their own zombie walk as they had the best look and zombie attitude - they devoured several small dogs and bit a few school girls.

Life-Size Gundam Returns to Tokyo

While at a German Oktoberfest Celebration (in May) in Odaiba, I came across my old friend Gundam whom I saw here 3 years ago. Gundam is back in Tokyo big as ever. In 2009 to mark the 30th Anniversary of the premiere of the popular anime show Gundam, a 1:1 life-size Gundam model was erected on the island of Odaiba in Tokyo. It stayed there for a couple of months before being moved to Shizouka. Now it's back in Tokyo for however long.

Gundam is an anime show where humans pilot these large robot-like suits called Mecha. Gundam has become a cultural icon in Japan.

Vagabond traveler currently hold up in Tokyo. I've done a far bit of traveling and had a few interesting adventures along the way. This blog is a chronicle of adventures past and present and those yet to come. I’ve been to about 30 countries though some no bigger than a kitchen table. I’ve run with the bulls of Pamplona, hiked the Inca Trail, got mugged in Mexico City, floated down the Nile in an old boat, climbed the Great Pyramid of Egypt, got ripped at Oktoberfest, and rode the notorious Tokyo Yamanote Halloween Party Train.
