As we arrived at the JCCCW, we were greeted by Hello Kitty wearing paper yoroi armor, and Lori Matsukawa, co-anchor of Seattle tv news station, KING 5 News. Bryan was interested in what Kitty was wearing. You will get paper yoroi too, Bryan!
There were many koinobori hanging everywhere.
Kaze Daiko began playing in a small room. It was very crowded, but we managed to watch from the hallway.
Children could try on a set of yoroi, samurai armor. My son is too small, but this boy was very happy to try on yoroi!
There were many things there that we didn't or couldn't participate in, my son is so young. There was kamishibai story telling, but Bryan would not sit still long enough to enjoy it. We tried some coloring, but he was not very interested.
Mommy just relaxes and takes pictures for a change!
