The Asakusa Samba Carnival is held annually, on a Saturday towards the end of August, in Asakusa, Tokyo , Japan. Attracting about 500,000 sightseers who fall under the spell of the passionate rhythms of the samba, the event has a strong international flavor.

The Samba Carnival, which started in 1981, is a new event. It started when the Mayor of Taito City (one of the central 23 cities of Tokyo) invited the winning group from that year's Rio Carnival in Brazil, the home of the samba, to put on a display.

The main attraction of the festival is the samba parade contest.

Together with samba teams from the carnival homeland of Brazil, about 3,500 lovers of samba rhythms come from all over Japan. These teams compete to put on the most spectacular dancing and other performances, creating a carnival that is just as wonderful as the one in Rio. Bright eye-catching costumes with beads and plumes of different colors also provide a visual feast. There are also plenty of ingenious devices that embody original ideas, including flower-decked floats on motor vehicles and allegoria handcarts with sound systems.

Usually thirty to forty teams compete for prizes and they are divided into three leagues. The top league comprises dancers who are seriously committed to dancing real Brazilian samba, those who put on original dances with a high degree of technical skill, and musicians who can expertly play South American percussion instruments. The teams give powerful displays. Some teams decide a theme for the year, for example "Star Wars," and the unified design of beautiful costumes is stunning.

In leagues 2 and 3, the participants are basically there to enjoy dancing the samba and being part in the fancy costume parade that comes together on the day. Many of these teams have a comical aspect that will make you laugh.

SWIFT code / ISO 9362 : Bank Identifier Code

SWIFT code / ISO 9362 : Bank Identifier Code

I am started my oversea business, my contact wants swift code bank , that I never to knows about it. I thinks some people don' t know as me .

What is SWIFT code ?

ISO 9362 (also known as SWIFT-BIC, BIC code or SWIFT code) is a standard format of Bank Identifier Codes approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). It is the unique identification code of a particular bank. These codes are used when transferring money between banks, particularly for international wire transfers, and also for the exchange of other messages between banks. The codes can sometimes be found on account statements.
The overlapping issue between ISO 9362 and ISO 13616 is discussed in the article International Bank Account Number.
The SWIFT code is 8 or 11 characters, made up of:
* 4 characters - bank code (only letters)
* 2 characters - ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code (only letters)
* 2 characters - location code (letters and digits) (if the second character is '1', then it denotes a passive participant in the SWIFT network)
* 3 characters - branch code, optional ('XXX' for primary office) (letters and digits)
Where an 8-digit code is given, it may be assumed that it refers to the primary office.
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) handles the registration of these codes. For this reason, Bank Identifier Codes (BICs) are often called SWIFT addresses or codes.
There are over 7,500 "live" codes (for partners actively connected to the BIC network) and an estimated 10,000 additional BIC codes which can be used for manual transactions.
Examples
As an example, Deutsche Bank is an international bank; its head office is based in Frankfurt, Germany. Its SWIFT code for its primary office is DEUTDEFF:
* DEUT identifies Deutsche Bank
* DE is the country code for Germany
* FF is the code for Frankfurt
Using an extended code of 11 digits (if the receiving bank has assigned branches or processing areas individual extended codes) allows the payment to be directed to a specific office. For example, DEUTDEFF500 would direct the payment to an office of Deutsche Bank in Bad Homburg.
