Japan Style

Tour & Taxis hosted the Japan Expo a few weeks ago - dedicated to everything you would most readily associate with Japan -  manga comics, playstations, karaoke and martial arts to name a few (along with a smattering of hello kitty and samourai swords). Most impressive were the dozens of people who went along dressed up as their favourite cartoon or video game character... costumes designed with such elaborate care, it must've taken hours of thought and preparation!

I went specifically to check out the martial arts demonstrations and shoot my friend Philippe's Shorinji Kempo class introducing the Belgian public to their art. If you fancy joining a class, and I highly reccomend you do - info can be found here
