The last one from Japan …

I think, and hope that this is the last blog of this trip from Japan …

We had an awesome time … and Japan is a great place …

I really liked the place, the people and the culture … and got to learn a lot from this place and this entire event …

Only the language and the food was kind of a problem … other than that, everything was perfect …

Today was a tiring day …

From morning, we were at the conference hall and after all the prize distribution ceremonies, had the flag exchanging stuff and all …

It was all fun …

It turns out, my predictions were almost right …

I got all the three teams right … but the order got mixed up …

In the software design, Russia came first … Followed by Greece and then China ..

In the short film category, our India team came second and the Mexico team won the event …

The Canadian “Thoughtpulse” team came third …

If you would like to know what each of these teams ( in the software design ) did in more detail, you can click here.

Night time, we had a fireworks display …

Today was Japan day ( I think .. ) and all the streets were and the entire harbour was filled with Japanese in Kimonos and traditional dresses …

All the roads were closed and all the people were on foot …

I have never seen so many Japanese at a time … the whole harbour side was jam packed like a rock concert …

We got a decent show from the convention center …

Anyways, tomorrow we have to catch a flight at 11:00 am and have to apparently leave the place by the 5:30 bus … as the ride to the Tokyo Airport is 2 hours long and we need to go and check there whether our flight will actually take off …

We are supposed to land in Mumbai … and all the news that we’re getting here is bad …

So, we’re trying to get to Delhi and then take a flight to Pune from there …

I hope everything works out well in the end …

As always … some more pictures of the trip …

Some shots from the fireworks show … Not at all good …

I got 2 mediocre shots after clicking about 40 odd or something …

Didnt have a tripod and impossible to do without one…

The big Japanese rush I was talking about … All the roads were just full … of people …

Anoter fireworks shot … More decent than the previous one though …

The entire Indian Contingent … with the two teams who actually won something …

The Short Film and the business plan team …

Seen on the rightmost corner in black … is Morris Sim … the guy who started the Imagine Cup.

Lots of other dignitaries and Japanese organisers also seen in the shot …

    congrats for the 2 wins and wish you a safe return! Mumbai is limping back to normalcy and i’m sure the scene won’t be half as bad as it was for your departure.
