All things Japanese are being celebrated at this weekend's Japan Festival in Houston.

Thousands of people visited the festival at Hermann Park on Saturday.

Some were dressed in traditional kimono. Others took part in an anime costume contest.

They sampled Japanese food and browsed through booths of traditional art, music and clothing.

The Japan Festival continues Sunday at the park's reflection pool.

Admission is free.
