This Japanese inspired soapbox will resemble the most visited castle in Japan called Himeji. Team Mobile Castle is introducing a five tiered castle that will take on the hills of Elysian Park, while releasing various surprises as it rolls downhill. “We wanted to have creativity and something that will also make it to the finish line. We’re from Japan and want to share the Japanese beauty to others,” said Kanji Takagi. Their costumes will include ancient samurai, ninja, and all around the Japanese culture from a few eras back. “We’re all friends and have known each other for about 15 to 20 years. I’m the oldest at 62 and we all met riding motorcycles when we were younger. This is like a young boy’s dream and a young boy’s dream never dies,” said Kanji.
