Culture Weekend

November 3 is Culture Day in Japan. On November 4, 2012 Shigeko-san drove Yayoi and I to the same venue where we had earlier seen a

Noh performance
to hear Akio-san sing with his choir. We had seen his Town Chorus earlier at a
Spring Concert.
There were a number of groups performing including one with about ten "koto" on stage. Later we left to see exhibits in the next building, including bonsai, various crafts, paper cutting art "kirie" and some beautiful photography. Then back to the theatre to see and hear the last performance by a school band playing a number of pieces including the national anthem.
