Men shout their love in Tokyo park for Valentine's Day

Feb. 13, 2012 at 5:35 PM   |   Comments

TOKYO, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Dozens of men took to the stage in a Tokyo park for a "shout your love" event designed to help them express their feelings to their sweethearts.

The downtown event gave men the chance to express their feelings with a microphone before an assembled crowd and even offered instructions on the best way to hug their lovers, CBS News reported Monday.

Rieko Nishiguchi, whose husband was among those making a public display of affection, said her husband is unusually affectionate for a Japanese man.

"My mother and father were the exact opposite of us. We had a very formal household, so it was impossible to ever say, 'I love you,'" Nishiguchi says. "Japanese are shy. We like to think that love needs no words, that's it's automatically understood. But love needs to be stated."
