St Louis Botanical Gardens Japanese Matsuri 2004
Visitors to the Japanse Matsuri at the Missouri Botanical Gardens on September 4, 5, and 6, 2004 were treated to one of the most comprehensive demonstrations of classical Japanese martial arts held in this country. Since most of you weren't able to make it, I've selected some photos for you to enjoy.
The Japanese gardens and the festival are quite simply outstanding and tons of fun. If you are ever looking for a way to spend Labor Day weekend, a visit to St. Louis is an excellent choice. I think I can speak for all the demonstrators in saying that we truly enjoyed the experience, and in thanking Dave Lowry for arranging our particpation.
I'd like to thank the photographers, Jason Nachtrab, Mark Raugas, and Will Schutt, who have been extremely generous in allowing me to post these photos. Please do not abuse their generosity by violating their copyright. You may enjoy these photos on your own computer, but please do not use them in any public way without obtaining permission. Thanks for your understanding!
