This video shows you a video of me and my family/friends' trip to the annual Nikkei Matsuri Festival located in San Jose's Japantown. This was my very first time to see this festival. It was a great experience! The San Jose Japantown Nikkei Matsuri is the San Jose Japanese American community's celebration of heritage and culture. This festival is enjoyed by people of all ages and is located in the heart of one of the three remaining Japantowns in the nation. This was the 35th year of the festival. The festival took place from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. First, the video shows a few karate/martial art techniques demonstrated at the Indoor Stage. They show us how to fall correctly, do some defensive techniques and more! Then later, we headed outside again and then saw music performances at the Outdoor Stage, performed by the CYS (Community Youth Services) Dance Group, students of Ukulele Jams, Chidori Band (traditional Japanese music), Wesley Jazz Ensemble, and San Jose Taiko. To end the video, it shows some photos I took during our trip here. Enjoy! [Filmed on Sunday afternoon, April 29, 2012 in San Jose's Japantown with my Canon Powershot SD1100 IS Digital ELPH camera]
