あくまで、兎執事ですから。

I spent a good portion of my day dressed as a bunny butler wandering around Harajuku and handing out chocolate. Why...? Because a little weirdness in life makes everyone happier.

There was a small festival going on, dedicated to the Earth and organic farming. I looked around and found myself at a stall selling genmai mochi (a kind of sticky brown rice). There were two types; one covered in kinako (sweet) and the other with a little miso (savoury?). I ate them both with the lady shouting "Usagi-san is eating OUR genmai mochi!"

Then I ran into a "Free Hug" group. I don't know if this only happens in Japan, but groups of people stand around holding signs saying 'free hugs' and you just... go and hug them! I admire them (and there must be hundreds, since I see them at major stations all the time, but never the same person twice), because they bring a little of that weirdness I mentioned earlier. Anyway, I hugged the first guy, then the second guy, and by the last guy, we were running, jumping and ending with a kind of glomping tackle. See how that weirdness works?

After that, I went to Kichijouji and had an Easter party. Fresh ham, sangria and trifle, followed by Tenimyu-watching.

Anyway, here's a picture of me with one of the Free Hugs people (I've pixellated his face, just in case), just in case you're saying to yourself 'Pics or it didn't happen'. You'll only be able to see it if you're properly logged in and listed as a friend.

Happy Easter!
