The Ono Bunkasai was the following Wednesday, so the kids spent the day at Mikabomiraikan, the city’s performance hall.

Practicing outside before entering

Art exhibit in the main hall for people to browse.

Some of my favorites:

“Ito”, the kanji for thread

“Tori”, the kanji for bird

“Oyo(gu)”, the kanji for “to swim”

“Neko”, the kanji for cat

Aren’t they clever? There were a ton of good ones! And also some really awesome scissor art

Anyway, I got a ton of pics of the kids performing, so I’ll just post one:

The sannensei girl’s special choir

And the program.

Lunch was bentou, and overall the day was really great!
