JULY 2013...OBON FESTIVAL.
taiko drums and kimonos....my two favorite features
my favorite one this year...
sensei with young students
my favorite obi this year
I was lucky to be in Japan to catch this year's Taiko at the temple close to our hotel.
Below is Colleen's newest student ...who made her very first pillows from scratch...and learned how to use the sewing machine.
These are the Obon festival "Elvises"...
they dance every year...love these guys.
all people participate...just join in and have fun.
Local area taiko group...pretty darn good.
