I know I promised the Snow Festival pics (I'll get to them - honest), but I just had to post these from last night at the Nagasaki Lantern Festival. I was right up front for this performance of Okinawan drumming (drumming + crisp movements + excited whistling + exuberant faces!).
There was so much joy in the kids' expressions...I can still hear and feel the delightful beats inside me this morning!
The white sock-looking things they are wearing are called "tabi"
Can you see the large lanterns in the shape of people in the background?
Ry - I really think you should come over and try this!
