First time I came to Japan it's the Japanese Girls Hat Dance that made me realize Japan has a culture that one must experience to fully understand. Lovin it!

The succession for the heritage tradition is a big challenge as the Japanese community is facing the aging population and its overall decline.

How many times have I told UNESCO to just put the whole precious Island of Japan as a World Heritage site. It will save us time.

If a dance can be a heritage, how many should be in the world ? Thousands for sure.
