Kuniko Yamamoto at Martin Library

Kuniko Yamamoto uses folk tales, music, masks and subtle magic to illustrate the cultural perspectives of Japan. She gave a free performance at York's Martin Library on December 10, 2007 as part of SFMS's Martin Library Series.

Kuniko Yamamoto tells folk tales from Japan.

Who knew a sushi mat could become... a fish? Flags? Fireworks? Kuniko's performance held all ages spellbound.

Children were spellbound by Kuniko Yamamoto's performance.
