We had our Flowing Noodles, Hittin’ Ricecakes event on 16th June, 2012 at Bamboo Suppliers in Newcastle, Co. Dublin. It was a great day with over 60 people in attendance. We didn’t have the sun splitting the stones but the rain did hold off during the event.
A big thanks goes to Taiseiyo Taiko (
http://www.taikoireland.com/) for their amazing taiko performance, Tsutomu and Konami Yono for showing us how to make mochi and Karate-Do Wado Kenshu-Kai International ( http://wadokarateiwasaki.org/) for the martial arts display.
We hope to do a similar event in the future. See you there!
