2013 World Baseball Classic Semi-Final 1: Puerto Rico vs. Japan
2013.03.17

Missed the first few innings as I was preoccupied with some yummy Indian food, but I finally made it down to my usual spot at the ballpark behind right field.

2013 Cherry Blossom Festival Grand Parade
2013.04.21

San Francisco’s Japantown has been busy the past two weekends for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, and the culmination of all the celebrations was the Grand Parade last Sunday. It’s one of the few times of the year that the casual observer can see the Japanese community together in Japantown, as only a handful of elderly folks still live in the community… Most have assimilated and spread across the greater Bay Area. Recently, Japantown merchants seem to be much more proactive about holding events year-round, and the opening of Daisō (Japanese dollar store) has been generating a lot of foot traffic, so the place isn’t completely dead nowadays.

There’s always a lot of schoolchildren in the parade, with many of the groups coming from bilingual / bicultural schools.

San Francisco and Ōsaka have a comparatively well-known sister-city relationship, with the then-mayor of Ōsaka City visiting a few years ago… Never knew that Oakland and Fukuoka were sister cities, though.

I suppose this is supposed to be a modern take on kabuki

A group of Awa-odori dancers. They seemed a bit more of what you might expect at a traditional Japanese festival.

There are quite a few language immersion programs in the city’s public schools, but they are exclusively geared towards Spanish and Cantonese / Mandarin (with the exception of one Korean program). However, a few of the schools, like this one, have Japanese bilingual / bicultural programs.

The official festival pageant is sponsored by JAL. Japan’s first international flight post-WWII was Tōkyō–Honolulu–San Francisco, and the Tōkyō–San Francisco flights are still known as JL001/JL002.

I suppose like most parades focused on immigrant cultures, this one is more a Japanese American parade than a Japanese parade… However, there is some participation from the homeland, and this particular mikoshi (palanquin) was donated by a fairly famous shrine in Tōkyō (Kanda Myōjin). Priests from the home shrine visit every year to perform the special rites during the festival.

The finale of the festival is this taru-mikoshi formed of sake barrels. The guy on top is in pretty much every parade.

Golden Gate Park
2013.01.13

Another set from the city’s sand-dunes-turned-urban-oasis, focusing on a few more of the park’s attractions. This time, we start off at the eastern end of the park at the Conservatory of Flowers, built in 1878. It is the oldest building in Golden Gate Park, and claims to be the oldest extant public conservatory in the western hemisphere. Regardless, it’s a beautiful building, and one of the park’s most photographed sights.

The conservatory grounds are also a pleasure, with well-tended flower beds and a historic tunnel beneath John F. Kennedy Drive.

We continue down John F. Kennedy Drive, one of the park’s main east-west thoroughfares. The eastern end of the road is closed to vehicular traffic on Saturdays and Sundays, and many city residents come out to enjoy some of the sun in running shoes, on skates, or on bikes.
