Dancing Lion
At least these guys had costumes to keep them warm - the "Miss Vancouver" float, the women looked like they would soon succumb to frost bite.

I was impressed with the quality of the gear on the horses, as well as the detail that went into the armor.

Geishas On Stage
This stage was pushed the whole length of the parade. There were three shaparones walking behind.

The woman in orange represents Lady Shizuka (1180) Shizuka-Gozen, a Kyoto dancer, was the beloved of Minamoto-Yoshitsune.

Human Archery Target
Back in the day (Kamakura Period 1192-1333AD), apparently the Yabusame Archers had humans hold the targets. Notice there is only one level - good enough, not the bulls eye we see.

Little Bird
Some of the children were dressed as little birds and little butterflies. At this point they had walked a few km so I'm sure they were tired. (Zen-retsu)

Soldier Walking
He has stone in his armor and the two swords you would expect from a Samurai. I was impressed with the quality that went into the costumes.

Cross Dressing Students
For some reason, cross dressing seems to be a bit more common in Japan. These students were a little surprised to see foreigners taking pictures of them - the girls behind throught it was hilarous.
