An Island Weekend

Island City plays host to Obon Festival, Radio Day

Above, students in her dance group, dressed in similar kimonos, passed by choreographer Michisuya Hanayagi as she led the Bon Odori dance at last Saturday’s Obon Festival at the Buddhist Temple, 2325 Pacific Avenue. Hanayagi is a sensei, a master of her art. 

Below, the California Historical Radio Society, 2152 Central Ave., hosted Radio Day by the Bay last Saturday as well. People who love all things radio gathered at the society’s headquarters. They participated in an auction of vintage radios, enjoyed a live radio play and musical performance and spent some money at the society’s vintage electronic equipment sale.
