Some of these were captured at  festival sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Houston and held in Hermann Park.  Much of the entertainment was paid for by the Japanese Consulate here in Houston. The remaining photos are from a small art festival held at Houston’s beautiful Elizabeth Baldwin Park.

  3. When I was a teenager, I remember that Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris (my then-crush !) said that the Japanese women were the most beautiful women in the world ! These Japanese-American women are particularly gorgeous too (and what sublime kimonos) !
