Japan Festival Daley Center Plaza Chicago 1988

Licensing

The Japan Festival held at the Daley Center Plaza in downtown Chicago in 1988, was part of the annual Asian / Pacific Awareness Month, held each May. This early performance included young dancers and other performers and served as an opportunity to show our unique Japanese American heritage. The Uchimotos were great supporters of the cultural exchange, training dancers, teaching music and organizing events.
