Woohoo! Arizona Matsuri
is coming! My taiko group is about to start rehearsing for our gig at the 33rd annual Japanese festival in Phoenix on February 25-26! We are playing on the ASU stage at 11:00am on Saturday
, so come to Phoenix and see one of the best Japanese festivals in the USA!
It's a great festival if you are shopping for kimono items- every year I find something amazing- obi, obi jime, happi coat, geta, zori, yukata, kimono, and more. Last year I found three summer weave obi in silk and polyester mesh. A few years ago I found one of my favorite kimono there- a lovely bingata patterned komon with elegantly long sleeves.

The weather is usually fabulous (Sometimes warm!), the entertainment and food is always amazing, and we now have a shady sake and beer garden! Sometime in the next few weeks, I will be looking into what kimono or yukata I will be wearing on Sunday- I hope to post something here.
I hope to see you there.
