This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a Japanese festival put on by Japanese high school students from Isesaki, Japan (One of Springfield's sister cities). I enjoyed a Japanese tea ceremony, played Japanese games, had my name written in Japanese calligraphy, watched dances and fashion shows.
