I'm usually not a patient person, and don't enjoy waiting to get a shot. But when I found out we'd be in Tokyo on a Sunday, I HAD to find these guys. The Rockabilly Dancers come to Yoyogi Park every week, and seem to draw a huge crowd. Problem is, I had no idea where they were gathering and at what time. It took a lot of patience and wandering and getting lost and waiting, but I eventually found them, and took quite a few shots too.
