Japan Folk Dance and Music Show- Awesome!

The other day my mom saw an ad in the Arab Times with info on a show given by the Japanese embassy. Since my daughter LOVES Japan and everything about it we went to the show last night. It's at the Al-Dasma theater. It started at 7 p.m. and we were there right on time. It wasn't very crowded which made it nice.

When we entered we were given glasses of juice. We went and grabbed our seats as the show began. I will post some pics when I get them but I wanted everyone to know that there's a show tonight at 7 p.m. The show was so amaaaazing! The women were beautiful and the costumes were so bright and colorful.

It's a story about the four seasons in a southern island. There was singing and Japanese dances. It never got boring. The presentation told a story about the four seasons. The music was surprisingly cool. I really wanted some of their outfits, they are so colorful.

During intermission we were offered a finger food buffet. Awesome! I saw one of the newspaper photographers running for the door and when I got to the line he was picking up food with his fingers and eating the food right out of the tray. Rude! I would figure that people would realize there's a limited amount of food and several people still in line. I only took a few pieces as I didn't want to be greedy. That didn't stop some of the people from thinking they were at a real buffet. They piled on the food like this was dinner.

The second half of the show was just as good. I really had a nice time and hope Japan can recover from the earthquake and tsunami. I would like to thank the the Embassy of Japan for bringing such a wonderful program, it was beautiful!

There will be a second showing tonight at 7 p.m. at the Al-Dasma theater. I highly recommend it!
