The beautifully decorated Kimono worn by this Japanese dancer is one example of the many that can be seen at the 10th annual Seattle Cheery Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival, opening May 3rd for three days at the Seattle Center. Kimonos are no longer worn as a necessity in Japan, but as a means of enjoying life more fully. Visitors to the admission-free festival can also see a wide variety of artistic talents, arts, crafts, and interesting cultural displays direct from Japan. Photo by: Michael Ziegler.
