Practitioners performed the fan dance

Shinagawa is one of the most densely populated central areas of Japan. The annual Ullambana Festival is a Japanese traditional festival, to which practitioners were invited to participate for the first time. The practitioners performed a fan dance, which was very eye-catching. The person in charge of the host organisation said after watching the dance, "It was absolutely right to invite you this year." Later the practitioners wore different costumes and demonstrated the five exercises. They also sang, "Falun Dafa Comes to the Human World" and performed the dances "Flower Deity" and "Golden Buddha with a Thousand Hands." The practitioners' excellent performances were the highpoint of the festival. The audience applauded warmly, and the host praised them again and again, "The audience was in high spirits and took many photos. Your performances were splendid and wonderful."

When the practitioners indicated their wish to come again next year, the director of the host organisation said, "Don't wait until next year. We will contact you again in the near future."
