Dancing in Fukuyama
Yesterday, I did a kind of traditional Japanese dance at a formal dinner for my Aikido dojo. Seven of us performed at a hotel ballroom in Fukuyama for an audience of about 150 people. We wore masks that we held in our teeth, becuase we took them off during the dance and by holding it in our teeth, we could take off the mask easily. We also wore kimono and used Japanese folding fans. We were not perfect, but I think we did a pretty good job. We had a lot of fun practicing and getting ready. I hope to get a video of the dance sometime soon. If so, I will post it up here.
