With sincere respect to Hawaii, we are here at the Honolulu Festival for the first time from Nippori/Yanaka, Tokyo. Nippori/Yanaka is a very spiritual place, home of over 100 temples. Our hearts are pounding with excitement. We are happy to have this wonderful opportunity to come to Hawaii. Mahalo nui to you all, we share our aloha spirit.
