Diwali dancers

Happy Diwali to any and all Indian readers.

Yesterday was a day of culture. Not Japanese culture no but first some German bonhomie at the Yokohama Oktoberfest.

After that I walked across to Yamashita Park for some Indian culture at Yokohama Diwali festival from which this picture was taken. The beer was better at Octoberfest, the food amazing at Diwali. God I have missed good curry!!!

Busy but will write more soon.

  1. Nice shot of the dancers…surprised you managed to get away from the curry long enough to take pics. I’d have gorged myself on it and rolled home.

  2. Yes Will! The curry was amazing, rolled home belly aching with biriani, tikka, rogan josh and mango lassi memories, at the end of the day they were even giving the meals and lassis away free! More pictures of the event at:

  4. Hi
    I had no idea that there is a Diwali festival in Japan! Is it organised by expat Indians or the Japanese govt?

    Lovely pictures!
