Performed at the Japan Fall Festival in Springfield Missouri.
Often time sister city with Japan, University connection or Japan-America community is the core power to make it happen. The theme of Japan referｓ to art, food and entertainment. It's common to see kimono, samurai and bonsai exhibition, then great food stands such as Teriyaki Chicken. The entertainment would be Japanese drums, koto&shakuhachi music, martial arts and someone like me, Japanese storyteller.
Festival is always a team effort and I worked with hard working staff members of Sister City Association of Springfield, Arts Council and great volunteers. Nearly 7,000 visited the festival on the weekend. What a beautiful way to spend time together! Great to meet you all!!!
