Even though theres a sign clearly stating that the "act of vending/performance is strictly prohibited," you'll still often see folks doing these "acts" in Shinjuku on Sundays when the streets are closed off to vehicles.
I've seen people selling baby rabbits, parading their pet monkey, and the occasional band.

The temporary ban on vehicles is known as Hokousha Tengoku as explained previously in this article (includes a nice pair of eyes).

I plan to do the next dance in Shinjuku and was thinking of ideas until reader Sean sent in the following video - I believe that its my destiny to do the dance that this woman is doing. Shes also doing it right in the same location as these photos.
The main theme of this article is actually this video and I thought I'd throw in the stormtrooper pics taken in Shinjuku for good measure ^^; Have a look - it could be the first time you've seen somebody "dance" like this ^^;

Might as well take a look at the rest of the photos taken.

My body starts to twitch when I don't wear armor for a while so I wear it to go shopping.

Was in Shinjuku looking for some pouches to stick on the armor.

I read in a few comments that quite a few of you are coming to Tokyo in December. Remember to drop me a line when you are over and maybe we'll go shooting the next video together ^^;
