CHUBU NIHON KAJIN KAI journal posted information about my performance

The 84th edition of CHUBU NIHON KAJIN KAI journal posted an information about upcoming my reading performance.  I would like to extend my gratitude toward the society.

On Nov. 3rd, starting at 14:00 till 15:30, I will perform tanka reading and and appear in a talk session.   While performing tanka reading, I will play some ethnic musical instruments to add some sound effects.  I sincerely hope the audience enjoy it.

So far, I did over 150 bilingual tanka reading performances overseas and in international events.  I would like to increase the number of opportunities to deliver my performance to domesitic audience.
