Japanese New Year Extravaganza

Taiko drummers.

Japanese Dancers.

More Japanese Dancers.

We went to the Japanese New Year celebration in our hometown last weekend. It was wonderful because hubby, son, and daughter were there with me. My family  enjoy cultural events and our exposure to the Japanese people and their culture while we were living in Hawaii  made us very fond of anything Japanese.

Cool. We love anything Japanese here too. LOL We saw some great Taiko drummers at Epcot a few years ago. Amazing.

I'm sure it was beautiful to watch.  We enjoy attending the cultural events that occur locally, also.
