Waseda High School parade

I took these photos back on the 23rd, more than a week ago. I was on my way back to the lab when I saw a parade of school clubs from the nearby Waseda High School (which is separated to Junior and Senior high, I assume the ones I saw were from Junior High)

Not something you'll see everyday, so I whipped out my phone and started snapping.

My impression of Japanese high schools and their clubs come solely from the fictional depictions seen in video games, anime, manga, movies and J-doramas I grew up with, so I was more than a little amused to actually see them in the flesh.
