#6 Japanese Taiko Drum Performance by Wadaiko Syo Drum Centre
Bringing myself closer to the Japanese culture, I went to the "Welcome to Japan Fair" after shopping at the food fair. The traditional Japanese taiko drum performance was brought to us by Wakaido Syo Drum Centre, led by Mr. Nakanishi Takayuki in Malaysia since 8 years ago.
#7 Meet the powerful and attractive drum player, Mr. Nakanishi
It was indeed entertaining with its magical beat and ancient experience of Japan!
#8 Kids in the house - with great strength and passion in drums
#9 The drum master is good at flute too!
#10 Origami Workshop
Feel free to approach the friendly girls to teach you on origami, all the papers and guide books can be found at Daiso. Different sizes and designs can create amazing shapes and animals!

#12 Japanese Yosakoi Soran Dance
If you ask me which traditional outfit is the prettiest, I'd say it's definitely Japanese! Experience wearing a kimono yourself! And enjoy the Yosakoi-styled dance which is a unique combination of traditional Japanese dance movements with modern music. And I love the way it is so energetic yet suitable for all ages!
#13 Proud of this little girl who can endure the weight of the outfit and dance gracefully!
#14 Ninja performance by local university students
Special thanks to Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) so that I can feel I'm in Japan already!! Before visiting the beautiful Land of the Rising Sun, be sure to drop by at these Japan Fair and Iwate Food Fair ya!
