Kikusuiren Awaodori Perfect Smiles – Omiya Natsu Matsuri
If you spend a lot of time attending Awaodori festivals in and around Tokyo you are bound to grow fond of a few certain dancers or teams, all of us Awaodori fans have our own favorites! Here’s one team – Kikusuiren 菊水連 – that has more than their fair share of dancers with perfect smiles! The fantastically gorgeous woman in the first photo has a smile that is right up there in the Awaodori All Stars! And what about the otherworldly pose I managed to catch her in? Marvellous! And just look at the intensity of the young guys – they are going to go far! Especially the guy giving an excellent almost spring-loaded low stance just to break out in what almost looks like a ballet pose! Fantastic. Seeing people like these is one of the reasons I can never tire of this fantastic country!
