A quick update in words and pictures- mostly just teasers!
Have no idea what I'm writing about? It's this event that my taiko group is involved in every year.
My costume this year involves this hat-
Pilgrims hat from Japan
Kitsune (fox) mask
Plus haiku by Kobayashi Issa, this year's finale theme of the Hunter and the Hunted, kitsune masks, visiting taiko players, an Oni (Japanese demon) dancer, and new chant our group is doing in-between dancing- it's an Ainu folk song about a wolf and deer running in the woods. The whole event is going to be amazing and beautiful.
More updates soon,
