cool things at the porter exhange

I was asked to give a reminder about my porter exchange taiko gig tonight. I figured I could also use this post to tell people about the other cool things happening there today.

1:00 & 3:00 pm - Live Koto and Shamisen music complimented with a dancing performance by Sumie Kaneko and Michiko Kurata
2:00 pm - Aikido show by Yasu Itoh
4:00 pm - Origami demonstration by Brian Chan
5:00 pm - Wadaiko - live Japanese Drum ensemble performance by Odaiko New England

With on-going festival events throughout the day, including:
- Water Balloon Fishing (Yo-yo Tsuri)
- Juggling (Otedama)
- Brush and Ink Calligraphy (Shuuji)
- Tea Tasting
- Fortune Telling
- Raffle Ticket event

I would be that wadaiko stuff at 5pm. Were playing 3 songs and audience participation. We are very loud, so if you are at least bit sound sensitive, I'd suggest bringing hearing protection.
