While in Japan, the students gave two public performances, and the videos from these performances are now available for viewing on Youtube!
The first occured in the parking of the BBQ restaurant Uotaro on Monday, August 8. After the students had grilled their own lunches, they gave a performance for other people eating at the restaurant, as well as some of the host families and other parents of Rakko members who made the trip to watch:
The next public performance was the final performance of the trip, the joint performance between Rakko, Tokoraku, and the Pittsburgh Taiko TOMODACHI team.
Audience members were encouraged to leave comments via a paper included with the program. Many mentioned that they didn't know what to expect from the American group, but were both pleasantly surprised and impressed by the students, thoroughly enjoying their performance.
