The Southern California Kumamoto Prefecture Annual Picnic was held at Liberty Park in Cerritos. Both my Mother and sister have served as the association’s past Presidents. The annual picnic is a socialization venue to bring families together. Some came from far to see friends and acquaintances.
As in any social gathering, there were speeches followed by picnic lunch and entertainment.
A particular interest to J.J. and me was Mikaela Kai Flamenco presentation. Led by Ms. Michiyo Ando, their Flamenco was beautifully costumed and performed with a clear overture of Japanese. Belatedly I found out from the business card she gave me, Michiyo is also a certified reflexologist and reiki master.
