Last Saturday I attended the “Get on the Desk!” charity event at Kurodani. It was perfect weather for it, with lots of sunshine and clear autumn skies overhead. DoDo & raw elements and also Akou & Beni Zamza gave wonderful musical performances from the temple stage as we watched them from the garden.
Christophe Rossi (seen below on the left with Max) had a very funny magic act and had us all in stitches with his mischievous sense of humour.
There was also juggling. I have no idea what this guy’s name is (except he is part of the Juggling Donuts group) but he was very good. He did drop a couple of hoops but that only made the Obasans present root for him more. I couldn’t count how many times they said he was “kawaii”.
Attendance at the event was pretty good, so hopefully a fair amount of money was raised for those Nepalese orphans. Maybe Max can tell us how much in the comments? Here are some videos of the musical acts.

Thanks very much Michael.
It was a great day, and thanks to many people we raised about 80,000 yen for the orphanage.
I hope to plan another event there (Ei-Un-In) in the spring.
