A free-standing sidewalk pole for dancing seemed like the best idea of the century. This big girl certainly looks festive!
Back before the interwebs, 20 years ago, I never saw this video. Was it a more innocent time then?
It’s lovely to see the Crown Prince and Princess visiting the Tohoku refugees who have survived the tsunami, earthquake, and nuclear leakage. Wednesday will be the 2 month anniversary.
Update: The performance is already on YouTube. It begins with an absurd dance routine and ends with a long, chorus-less song in tribute to the “country of the sun.” Best part is that, in honor of the Emperor and Empress, all 14 members forsook their trademark sunglasses.
I think the average host or country yankii looks better than these 14 guys. What do you think?
Today Japanese hip hop dance band EXILE will perform in the official celebration of the Emperor’s 20th anniversary of assuming the throne. 天皇陛下、おめでとうございます。
