Re: trying to find info on aiki shrine festival, iwama 2014
To follow on from what Carl said, the usual thing is to watch the chanting and then the demo through the gap where the screen doors have been removed and then have a picnic on the lawn. Doshu usually does the rounds and you can usually get a picture with him (you definitely can if your sensei is on good terms with him, but I'm not sure what happens if you are on your own). Actually, I wonder what I did with those pictures. I think I misplaced them when I moved house... oh well.
