How does he do that ? Let me see,,,

Unfortunately photos and video shooting is not allowed during a performance, so I can’t show how they were, but believe me, it was incredible and amazing indeed!
In fact, I could not work out how he change one role to the other in seconds ! It was bit like Kabuki with a magic!

She has been in almost every Asian country, but Japan remains her number one travel destination. It wouldn't be a suprise if she has spent more time in ryokan and onsen than every Japanese person alive and one of her goals is to hike across the country in order not to miss out on any beautiful spot Japans nature has to offer.
