--------------------------------------------------

In Kyoto the leaves are now full of color.

It's been a quick six months since our last update. We should tell everyone what we've been up to.

First, we had our performance at the Zuisenkyo for their tea party:







Just a short ride north of Kokusai-kaikan and you find yourself in a beautiful place like this.







The tea ceremony was held next to their organic vegetable garden.







We also made some bamboo helicopters.







And they actually flew!







And our concert...Here's Yujiro checking his fly!







The perfect weather had everyone feeling good.







And we felt great too!







Everyone enjoying the sunshine.

Big thanks to the Zuisenkyo and to the residents there.

--------------------

Next, we played at an art gallery.







It was the first night of the exhibition, and the air was filled with excitement.







Everyone listened so attentively.







But we were all waiting for the wine to start flowing!







Cheers!







Thanks and best wishes to Yamazaki Ryo. His works of sculpture calm the heart.

----------------------

Next is our performance at a Zen temple.







The renowned garden of Entokuin.







The drumming drew in more and more curious people.







A good time was had by all.







Performing at a place like this has a special feeling.







Lots of folks came to see us, including Yujiro's teacher who first showed him how to play the guitar 24 years ago!







What a special oppurtunity it was to play at a place like this--it makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks to everyone for coming out to see us.







Our music will continue on...

----------------

And for our special news, here's our newest member!







We're now a trio!







He (she?) is our new tip jar!

Toss him a little change if you appreciate our music.

Thanks for reading and we look forward to seeing everyone soon,
