Thank you to West Hartford!

Happy to have been a part of West Hartford’s first Japan summer festival! Many thanks to the organizing committee of the Japan Society of West Hartford for inviting us, the organizers of the Blue Back Square that hosted our performance, the Japan Consul and many supporters that made our trip possible. We enjoyed the crowd’s energy and enthusiasm, especially from the many young people attending our performance. We hope you will remember this energy and happiness and spread it around for many days to come!
