Illinois October 2017
What a treat to participate in the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Illinois Prairie Chapter!
A demonstration by headmaster designate Senko Ikenobo and the screening of the film Flower and Sword were certainly highlights of this occasion. The public exhibition and professor Noda’s workshops were truly inspiring, and the hospitality of the chapter was outstanding. Many thanks to all involved, with a special shout out to our fabulous Friday evening dinner hosts.
