Today I visited Oyasuba Kofun in Koriyama City where Kofun Festival is being held through tomorrow. A powerful kofun singer Marikofun sang and danced live on the outdoor stage.

There stands a guidance building shown above. Many artifacts related to the kofun are displayed inside. The shape of the building itself is designed similar to a bracelet like artifact found here.

As one of the main events of the Kofun Festival, a singer & song writer, keyboard player and also a talented entertainer Marikofun performed her song and dance live. It was a really powerful, lovely and also intellectual performance based on kofun knowledge and experiences. Some of the scenes are shown above. The live show was free of charge.

She also composed a song for Oyasuba Kofun. Words and music are done all by herself. It was very good. Here are very short footages above just for getting atmosphere of the stage.
大安場古墳の歌も、作詞作曲し、披露されました。(年内、CD予定とのこと。) 上をクリックすれば、ごく短い映像があるので、雰囲気だけでもどうぞ。
Welcome! 福が満開、福のしま。
