Fighters, Giants have their parades

The Yomiuri Giants held their parade in Tokyo on Sunday, as did the Nippon Ham Fighters out in Hokkaido.

According the published reports, 340,000 fans showed up for the Giants' parade while 111,000 showed up for the Fighters' parade.

I had some time and swung by the parade in Ginza for the Giants.  I've never been to a championship parade before (MLB or NPB) so it was an interesting experience.

I also did take some pictures (including the one below), but they really didn't turn out as well as I had hoped because  my camera started acting up.  I did pick out some of the better images, which you can check out here.
