Food Shopping at Mitsuwa

I went to the Okinawa and Kyushu Foods Fair at New Jersey Mitsuwa today and purchased
some Okinawan foods.
 

Okinawan-style black sugar crepe is my favorite snack.
Zenzai, Yuzu tea and orange dressing are very good.  
 
 
Koppa Mochi
Purple sweet potato tick rice cake
Produced in Amakusa, Kumamoto
 
 
I also bought a book titled
"Honba no Edo Go"
Language spoken by commoners in Edo period.
Edo Go is now spoken in Kabuki theater.
 
 
今日九州沖縄物産展に初めて出かけてみた。
なんと博多ラーメンブース最高に込み合っているではないか。
ラーメンもいいけど
私の今日の目当ては沖縄食材、
好物の沖縄麦ぽーぽーミックス買ってきました。

Photo Shooting Day

Yesterday, I took snap shots for a program of Nosho sensei's 60-year anniversary show.
The show will be held at the Japanese-American Theatre in LA on October 20.
Currently, our dance members are working on the project.

 
宮城能松先生芸暦60周年公演(10月20日)を控え、現在能松会では公演プロジェクトチームを立ち上げプログラム作成などに忙しくしております。昨日は公演のプログラムに載せる顔写真の撮影を行いました。来月早々、能松会では、カリフォルニアにて合同リハが行われます。勿論私も参加予定です。先生の道場にて集中稽古の後、北米沖縄県人会(OAA)の講堂にて地謡の先生方(琉球琴、三線、太鼓、胡弓などの伴奏)との音合わせリハも行われるようです。
生演奏で踊れるなんてカリフォルニアならではのことです。楽しみです!

Sunday Excercise

I had a summer cold last week and couldn't do exercise.
Today, I enjoyed my Sunday exercise at a gym of the club house of my condominium. I usually use the gym room Sunday afternoon which many people who live here do not use the gym after 5 pm of Sunday.

My Latest Video

Hi, I hope you will have a wonderful July 4th weekend!
Today, I listed a new video on YouTube, from my performance at the American Museum of Natural History’s Kaufman Theatre in March 2012, in honor of the 100-year anniversary of Tokyo’s donation of cherry trees to New York City, a celebration event called “Japan Fest.”
