Kazuko made a Ikebana Flower Arrangement demonstration in front of about 50 CU students and other visitors at Japan Day at CU, organized by the Japanese Student Association & Cultural Events Board. This year, the event was held on March 10, 2013 at Glenn Miller Ballroom. She has been asked to provide Ikebana classes or demonstration for the last several years.
Soprry, I didn’t take any pictures at the actual event.
Kazuko proviede her collection of Hina Ningyou (Hina Doll) to be displayed at an annual Doll Festival at Simpson United Methodist Church in Arvada.
This style, Kyoto-style Goten Kazari Bina, of dolls for Girls Day (March 3) was very popular in Meiji, Taisho and early Showa era. But, it was discontinued in 1960s. She had a similar set when she was a child, but lost it. She recently acquired this particular set through auctions.
It has the background stage of Royal Palace, the Hall for State Ceremonies (Shishin-den), with 15 dolls with various music and ceremonial instruments.
