Asakusa Samba Carnival 2013 - Japanese Samba: Sexy&Weird

2103 Samba Carnival in Asakusa, Tokyo - not exactly the thing one would expect to see in the traditional area of Tokyo with Senso-ji Temple as a backdrop. Asakusa's Samba Carnival goes back 30 years and has grown in popularity over the years becoming the largest samba carnival outside of Brazil. As usual sexiness and oddity prevail from sexy sword-swinging gladiator women to walking manga.

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.
