During Golden Week in Japan, a street performers festival was held in Koenji, an artsy suburb in Tokyo, just west of Shinjuku on May 2-3, 2009. Most of the performers were Japanese, but a few hailed from France, China and Great Britain.
One of the most popular acts were acrobats, who dazzled the audience with their daring moves.
A couple of acts were performed on stilts showing great balance.
There were talented artists who drew on the pavement, and several musical acts were very entertaining.
