Nice photo spots of Pikachu parade 2017

Visited date 10:30 ~ 11:30 of 9 Aug. 2017
Photos and video were taken by iPhone.

I went to Minato Mirai area in Yokohama city to see the Pikachu parade.
It is an annual event in this place.
Minato Mirai area is a seaside urban area near Tokyo(about 1 hour by train).

Gigantic Pikachu balloon
I got off the train at Sakuragicho station of JR line.
It is one of the nearest station to the venue of Pikachu parade.
There were gigantic Pikachu balloon in front of the station.
The tall building in the back is Yokohama Landmark Tower.
It is the second tallest building in Japan.

From moving walkway to Yokohama Landmark Tower, I could see Pikachu on the deck of Nipponmaru ship.
NIPPON MARU was built in 1930 as a training ship for cadets.
During her service, NIPPON MARU logged 45.4 times around the earth.
Now it is one of the popular tourist attraction in this area.

Then they went to outside.
Rather than inside a building, it was easy to shoot them in head of  a line.
For some reason guard of the staffs were poor.

They reached to the Grand Mall park, in front of MarkIs Minato Mirai.
It was longer walk than last year.

Pikachu went back to their home.
In the last year some Pikachu stopped and performed a dance before returning, but there was no performance this year.
Anyway well done Pikachu!
It would be very hard because it was so hot and humid.
I was all in a sweat.

Time schedule of this parade isn’t opened to the public.
(Schedules of other events)
I saw them at 11:00 A.M.
Maybe they will appear at the same time each day.

They appeared at the red circle( in front of Minato Mirai Gallery ) in the map and paraded through the 2nd floor of Queen mall.
They went outside and danced at the plaza in front of Yokohama Landmark Tower.
Then they went back to the starting point by the same route.
