I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.

Is this an annual event?

Yes it is - it's held every year at the start of November, to coincide with the national holiday on 3rd November.
