Police marching bands from around the world have paraded through Tokyo’s upscale Ginza district before an audience of about 60,000 people.
The annual World Police Band Concert took place in Japan for the first time in 4 years on Monday, a national holiday.
Participants included bands from police headquarters across Japan, a group from the Imperial Guards, as well as bands from Paris, Vietnam, and New York City.
Female officers in the Vietnamese band dressed in colorful traditional clothing and danced along.
The event concluded with the New York City band playing the jazz number “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
