Re: In Memory of O'Sensei

Osensei is remembered around this time, along with Nidai Doshu, at the Aiki Shrine Rei-Taisai, a big Aikido festival in Iwama. It is held on Showa Day, a national holiday in Japan which usually falls around the time of the founder's death. It's the day after tomorrow this year (Thursday). There should be over three hundred people in attendance and the usual Shinto Ceremony and the current Doshu will do a hono embu -- a dedication of an Aikido demonstration within the Aiki Shrine.
