I participated in a Tanabata (Star Festival in July seven) & Bon Odori Festival yesterday. The event was hosted by the Japan Societyof Fairfield County of Connecticut. I always enjoy this festival. Yesterday, one of my students who lives in CT joined and a lady who originally comes from Okinawa and lives in that neighborhood also joined. It was full of joy and surprise.
A few showers dropped during Hanagasa Ondo odori, but the rain stopped quickly.
Here are some photos from the event.

Time for Tanzaku

We were invited by the Association for dinner (Japanese restaurant) after the event.
