Cat Festival in Tokyo – level 2
A cat festival happened in Tokyo in an area which is famous for its love of cats. People painted their faces, wore masks, or just put on cat ears, and paraded through the streets.
A Japanese designer organised the festival. She said that she wanted to celebrate Halloween, autumn and cats all in one parade. The festival was a hit. People put a lot of work into their costumes.
Japan is a country that loves cats. It introduced cat cafés and Hello Kitty to the world. There's even enough love for stray cats in Tokyo.
Difficult words: parade (when people move slowly down a street to honour something), costume (a set of clothes which look like something special), stray (homeless).
