#901 A Nihon buyo lesson in Karahori

A trial lesson of “Nihon buyo”

I had a trial lesson of “Nihon buyo”, a kind of classical Japanese dance, with my friend.
At beginning, I was a little bit nervous because I didn’t know about Nihon buyo at all.
The beautiful teacher was wearing a nice kimono and tought us how to move our legs and how to hold our tenugui, which is a Japanese hand towel. When we danced we had to bend down and move slowly. The movement was a little bit tough for me, because I don’t usually pose like this in my daily life. I was sweating a little but eventually I got more comfortable with the dance.
At the end of the lesson, I took a video of myself dancing with my smartphone. Although it was only 1 minute long, I think I did well.
The lesson was about an hour. It didn’t feel like it as I was enjoying it so much.

What is the “Karahori Workshop Fes”!?


After the lesson, my friend M and I headed to a chocolate shop. We needed some drinks and sweets. I had a hot chocolate and a chocolate cake. They were delicious.

Actually there was a workshop festival in the Karahori area. We visited many shops. We touched , smelled and ate.

At last, we entered a small bonsai shop and we each bought a tiny bonsai. We promised to each other that we wouldn’t let it die and would send pictures of it to each other to report its status.

I had so much fun at the festival. I will look forward to next years’ festival.

日舞だなんて、nakoお嬢様にぴったりですわ。
でも、中腰で動くのは大変そうね。
着物も貸してくれたの?

この盆栽の花は何ていう名前ですか?
教えてください。
盆栽、っていうと『木』のイメージだけど、これは草よね?
枯らさないように、頑張りましょう!

草花は盆栽とは言わないのかな?つい盆栽と言ってしまったけど、鉢は盆栽鉢です。また入れ物から入ってしまって、中の草花を後から選びました。
うっかりお花の名前をお店の人に聞くのを忘れてしまい、わからずじまいです。Yokoさんわかったら教えてください。
今のところ生きています。

着物は先生だけが着られていて私たちはジーンズでした。足袋は履いたよw!
