  4. Just love the costume! I like this kind of performances coz it shows the culture of the place aside from the colorful costumes they wear.

  7. What a fantastic capture! The colors are breathtaking! Your photos brought back wonderful memories of the years I worked for Komatsu in Portland, OR! It was my first opportunity to really get acquainted with the Japanese culture and it was an incredible experience. Hope your week goes well! Thank you for your visit and comment on my blog! Always appreciated!
