Long traditions of diverse local performances with joyful sounds of musical accompaniment and elegant dances are found throughout Japan. “Kiyari” and “Binzasara dance” are ones performed at the Asakusa Sanja Festival. Ogano Kabuki in Saitama Pref. is one handed down from parents to children for approximately 200 years since the Edo period. We watched this Kabuki performance where a total of 40 town’s households cover every role from background to actors. We also discovered the secret behind the sound essential to local performing arts on our visit to a craftsman of a traverse flute. How will such Japanese tradition be seen in the eyes of our foreign guests?

One of my passion is japanese idols, especially Airi Suzuki from C-ute. I think japanese Idols are unique, and can transmit feelings to the world thanks to their personalities, passion, and hard work. I try to convey the feelings Airi Suzuki gives me to other people as much as possible. I want everyone to understand how Idols are a part of what we call "Cool Japan", and how much happiness they can bring us.
I love all of the Kawaii snacks found in Japan. Whether pre-packaged or fresh bakery items like pastries shaped as teddy bears or muffins with smiley faces -they are all so cute and make me smile.
I had so much fun at the Toei Kyoto Studio Park! I work in the film/tv industry in Los Angeles so it was great to see the ninja shows, the movie sets, the costumes, etc. of a real Japanese film studio!
