Japan & China 2017

Posted on January 6th, 2018 by Viveca in Travel

In the fall of 2017, I attended the Japan Juggling Festival, traveled for just a few days in Japan, and then attended the China Wuqiao International Circus Festival. (I’m linking to the official festival page even though as of this writing, it hadn’t been updated since 2015.) While I was traveling, I posted albums of images and notes on Facebook. I didn’t write a full account but am linking to those galleries here.
