Bon Dance Practice will be held here at Koloa Jodo Mission tonight at 7:00 p.m. Ms. Fay Tateishi and Mrs. Sakiko Miyahara will come here to teach us new dance called "Gokigen Song" and some other songs, too. This class is for free and will be a good chance for beginners to learn Bon Dance.

By the way, my favorite song is "Beautiful Sunday." The original song "Beautiful Sunday" by Daniel Boone in 1972, was covered by many Asian singers. This version is by Seiji Tanaka, which hit in Japan in 1976.
