This past week I worked as a Volunteer at the yearly Japan Summer Festival in Chicago. I started to this since 2008. In 2008 I actually performed Soranbushi, which is a kind of a traditional fisherman dance in Japan.
The following years I just worked as a volunteer and helped with the kids section, as well as Mikoshi . This year though, there were so many half Japanese half foreign kids and babies. They were all super cute.
Even a lot of the volunteers were half kids. In my section I worked with a Japanese/American, Japanese/Indian, Japanese/Serbian, and a Japanese/Polish, and a Japanese/Brazilian.
The following picture shows the Japanese/Serbian (left) and Japanese/Polish (right) girls.
This experience made me want to have a half kid in the future. (^∇^)
