Happy New Year! 2017

Dear INI members and supporters, Happy New Year! 明けましておめでとうございます!

2016 has been a pretty intense year for all of us. Many more challenges are awaiting in 2017 and we are ready to meet them with enthusiasm and determination!

Here is a photo of Udaka-sensei’s Okina-kazari: ritual decorations and offerings, displayed along with objects related to Okina. Hanging above the altar you see Udaka-sensei’s latest Hakushiki-jo, the mask used for the role of Okina. (There will be a free performance of Okina at Yasaka Shrine on January 3 from 09:00am, followed by Utai-zome – chant and dance performance at the Kongo Noh Theatre from 12:00)

We hope to see you all soon – we will post information on the 2017 Summer Intensive Training in the next few days, so keep an eye on that. How exciting!

Again Happy New Year – all best wishes for a great 2017!
