House concert this afternoon in Tokyo. Afterwards, this group of delightful women broke out into riotous rounds of ayatori (string figures), origami and yes juggling. Turns out they all juggled as kids, no big deal. This after a morning show for kindergarten school which wrapped up with the kids performing a song with such gusto I was moved to tears.
