Now the parade ended with great success.

Go back home

This time, I visited Matsuyama just to see the parade, so I will go home on the same day. While I waited for a bus to Matsuyama airport at Matsuyama City station, I took photos of trams there.Matsuyama City Station tram1

Then, I flew back to Tokyo from Matsuyama airport.Matsuyama airport Mican

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Mican’s parade. As I mentioned in the previous article, the air ticket between Tokyo and Matsuyama was not so cheap, but I was not sure whether I would have another chance to see the parade, so I decided to visit Matsuyama. In particular, the photos of Mican in the train should be rare, soI had no regrets as a huge fan of Mican 🙂

By the way, Yuru-chara Grand Prix 2016 will be held at Shiroyama Park in Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture. As I mentioned before, Mican will not enter the race in order to focus on hosting the event. Personally, I would like Dark Mican, who was created as an enemy role of Mican, to enter the grand prix, instead 🙂
