As a teacher of Madoka no Kai, Anju promotes the head of school’s philosophy of “enjoyment for everyone” with the hope of spreading an understanding of Japanese traditional performing arts. Her current goal is to set up a branch of Madoka no kai in Hawaii and she would like to preserve and carry on the Japanese traditional culture to the next generation.The performance in Hawaii is a return the favor to those who kept Japanese traditional culture.
