Just got home... I'm aching all over, 7:30a to 6:30p, but it was all well worth it. Thank you all who attended... I may not have been able to meet you all, but I could see that you were enjoying the festival.  I also have to commend the person/persons who had the Tonari no Totoro Cosplay... You really brightened the day for many kids and with today's temperatures you were a trooper, thank you again.

I hope you all can spread the word that San Jose Japantown festivals are a good place to have CosPlay gatherings...

YES, Totoro was amazing... And thank you for attending Nikkei Matsuri...
Me??? I was the lone Ronin wandering the festival and have been a volunteer CosPlayer for San Jose Japantown since 2006... It's very enjoyable... I meet people from all over (Cosplay is an instant "ice breaker") and the festival organizers appreciate the effort in assisting the community (It also changes people's opinion about CosPlay)...

Domo Arigato Gozaimasu!!! I hope you can help pass the word along that San Jose Japantown festivals are a good place to meet up (^_^)!
