Last stage
I met with Mr. and Mrs. Peter right after the first stage of SoyoDaiko. Mr. Peter told us ,,,,"I have visited over 70 countries but I have never seen something like that. It was very, very nice ". We talked many things about education, culture, school system so forth. They are from Austria as summer vacation for 10 days in Japan. I was very happy to talk to him since he was so excited of Soyo Daiko. ARIGATO Peter san. Please write to us at
「えっさ 小田原」はどこでも人気のある演目です。楽しく元気に”えっさ、えっさ、、、”と飛び、踊ります
"Essa-Odawara was wrote by Mr. Kobayashi of SoyoDaiko based on a kid's song called Osaruno Kagoya".
Everybody like this song and dance. We like it too.
