Hanashika-san da yo〜「噺家さんダヨ〜」♫

Despite the threat of a little rain, it appears that the 2012  Hikohachi Matsuri was once again a great success. Like every year, Sumiyoshi odori — led by Somemaru — was a crowd favorite. Fortunately, it was sunny and warm during the dance set.

It was sad not being there this year, but I was thrilled to find some video clips of the festival on YouTube (click photo for siratosaburou‘s video). It is wonderful to see Somemaru’s happy smile, looking great as emcee and dancer. Particularly funny is the final number, the newly choreographed Hanashika version of the dance Yakkosan/Anesan. Somemaru and Katsura Sankin had the audience rolling with laughter.

Nice work everyone! You look great!
