I am an orientalist (redux): Osaka Mecha Happy Festival

When I was in Germany during the summer, I came out as an orientalist. It appears little has changed since I have returned to Japan. Why is my camera so attracted to Asian dance? Or is it Asian dancers? These photos were taken at the Osaka Mecha Happy Festival in the space between the Kyobashi Keihan and JR train stations on Health and Sports Day (October 11). Dance groups of all ages from the Kansai area participated and performed.
