Traditional Japanese weddings may well be overly formal, particularly in relation to both clothing and conduct. With the former being especially applicable to the bride, who has to endure wearing an uncomfortable outfit and an elaborate and heavy headdress. And all of the above is especially true if the ceremony is held at Tokyo’s famous Meiji Shrine like the one pictured below.
But despite all the pomp and circumstance, there’s no denying that it makes for quite a spectacle.
(Due to the purchase of a rather fancy digital camera, from now on all Random Images posts are going to be clickable like the two above. Which means that my haphazardly taken photos will be viewable in all their high-resolution glory. A few previous posts have also been granted this new and dazzling feature. The nationalist admittedly still isn’t all that impressive, but the Harajuku girls certainly benefit from a clearer and brighter image. And even if I say so myself, the street performer is very dramatic. If a little scary.)
