Celebrate the cultural heritage of San Francisco’s Japantown with this livestreaming festival of music and arts. Performers include Shoko Hikage and friends on the koto; Sanjuro Toyoaki, the National Gintenkai Project, Tsukasa Taiko, and GenRyu Arts of San Francisco presenting ozashiki shamisen; and a prerecorded koto performance by Hanaikada. We’ll also have craft demonstrations, including washi-ningyo (Japanese paper dolls) with Rochelle Lum and origami by Linda Mihara of Paper Tree. As a bonus, we’ll also stream a performance by Soko Fujima Ryu Kansuma Dance Ensemble of Los Angeles from Japan Day 2019.
