Daruma dolls have white eyes.

Alien want to draw pretty green eyes on them. They must be cute like Alien. 

 

 

This space is for Doyo-kai, a Saturaday Japanese school.

This was a performance by "Anaguma-Eisa," a group of Okinawa drum players. 

They danced and drumed. Their sounds were perfect for the festival!  

 

 

 

This was a performance by "Hibiki," a group of Japanese drum players in Milwaukee.

Alien love the sounds of taiko drums. 

 

 

 

Yummy Japanese foods is another fun part of the Japan Fest.

There were yakisoba, yakiudon (fried noodle), California rolls, curry & rice, beef bowl, takoyaki (octopus dumpling), cakes, breads, rice balls, etc. etc.  

 

 

Alien's choice was this.

Alien got Japanese sweets. A box of hand-made Japanese sweets and a cup of cold green tea. 

Alien was so happy to enjoy Japanese sweets in the US! Yum yum yum. 

 

 

 

Stranger young guys talked to Alien when Alien enjoyed the Japanese sweets at a table.

They told Alien they read this blog. 

...Wow Alien am on the escalator to stardam!

 Alien should practice autographing!!
