Performers with U-Stage, a Japanese traveling troupe, make audience members laugh with their antics.
At the Matsuri Festival of Japan in downtown Phoenix, thousands ´┐Żof locals and out-of-towners amble down the walkways of Heritage and Science Park. They are shopping for authentic Japanese products and eating at dozens of food stands, where barbecue fills the air with smoke and the smell of grilled chicken.

On three stages, Japanese and other performers model kimonos, sword fight, play Taiko drums and dance, educating audience members about Japanese culture while entertaining them. Though it draws an enormous crowd every year, the festival remains unknown to most locals, as does Japanese culture, rich in tradition and beauty.
