The 27th annual Arizona Matsuri festival was celebrated with true Japanese culture and passion. The weekend long festival included dance, musical and technique performances and also introduced a beer garden. Those who attended were dressed in their Japanese Street Fashion or Cosplay and had a Kilauea Ice in one hand and a bonsai tree in another.
