This was going on within the Ginza subway station. There was a live video and audio link up and running between Sweden and Tokyo. On the left you see people in Japan conversing with friends of theirs who happen to be in Sweden.The day that we visited the live link (it was up for one week) there was some kind of religious Swedish event. The top picture shows people in Sweden singing to Tokyo, the picture on the right shows people in Tokyo singing to people in Sweden. It was an interesting event. Most people in Japan don't speak Swedish and most people in Sweden don't speak Japanese, so much of the communication that went on over the video link was in English. Apparently there wasn't a huge goal that was being acheived, the people who organized it mostly made it happen because they could.(Hm, what happens when wax from those candles drips on your head? Is it hard to wash out?)
