Bake cupcakes, not kids

11 Apr

I am becoming quite the protest-hopper! And I like it 🙂

Yesterday, my dad and I went to an anti-nuclear demo in Tokyo. It is estimated that between 5,000 – 15,000 attended (personally I wouldn’t have put it above 7,000) but anywhere on that scale is basically unheard of in Japan. There is not a strong tradition of big protest here, so it was super exciting to see the banners and the chants come out. The Japanese clearly win in the cutest banners ever competition.
