Samurai Fes, Combination of Performance, Experience, Food & Drink

Amid the cold drizzle, hundreds of visitors were captivated with the Samurai Fes held from Feb. 22 (Thursday) to 25 (Sunday) at Tokyo Metropolitan Ueno Park.

This was the second Samurai Fes since the COVID-19 pandemic was over.

Skylets members joined the Fes as volunteers.

I worked at a shop which displayed collectin of authentic armors and gave visitors an experience to wear Samurai costume for 2000 yen per person for 15 minutes. Our job was to have the guests come back to the shop in 15 minutes and take a lot of photos of them.

And another Skylets members walked around the entrance gate and navigated visitors where to go.
