Japanese Culture Festival at UP AME Monogatari

Best Blogger Tips
November 12, 2011 -the UP AME Monogatari was held in World Trade Center, Pasay City. What was most impressive about it is that it implied the 'spirit festival' theme (I'm not sure what it is formally called ^_^). It was focused not only on cosplay and anime, but also on Japanese culture. It took me to what seemed like an immersion in Japan.
The ticket! Love the graphics! :)

There are epic stories like this at the entrance hall. Cool!
 There were Japanese Kimono on display. Other than that, they had booths depicting a Shinto Shrine where one could make a wish. And wow! There was also a zen garden!

If I were to choose the best booth, it would be the Spirit Cafe. It reminded me of the anime Spirited Away. Some con-goers visited it. 

And now for the most awaited part! Here are the photos of the cosplayers from the event. The East Pavillion of WTC was so packed that it was hard to get a decent shot.
