Andrew Tsubaki, head instructor of the Kansas Ki Society, was awarded the Order of the Sacred Treasure from the Emperor of Japan. It is a prestigious honor since only three awards are given outside of Japan annually.
Tsubaki Sensei taught Japanese theatre at Kansas University and is famous for introducing and teaching Japanese "Noh" dramas to North America.
