On the day we arrived, there was one couple from Tokyo staying at KAIYU.
Go Anai and his wife Tomoko san. Both have the beautiful eyes which leave an strong impression to me. They looked relaxed, mellow character and also have the strength within their heart.
"Go kun is a dancer. He said it's contemporary, but I'm not sure what's kind of dance it is..." Mi-chan told us so and that made me pretty much looking forward to seeing him at the dinner time, because I like "dance" a bit!
And the dinner time came. In Kaiyu Inn. all the guest eat dinner like one "big family", gathering at one big wooden table, and we share big plates, passing around, and talking each other like a family. Thanks for that eating style, I've met lots of nice people during my stay here every summer.
I found after having such a dinner time, even once, people can get closer without any difficulty. I truly think "eating" is such a great thing and precious time which can make everybody so healthy and happy.
During the dinner time, we all asked lots of questions to Go kun and Tomoko san. Why he started dancing, which country he went for his performance, how was the workshop etc,,, and also after dinner, we sat around the wooden stove and kept the "interview", and after some moment, Go kun stood up and went "OK. I want to dance. Under this beautiful stars, and with the inspiration from this place. " Then he changed his clothes to the dance costumes - black, white and some gold pattern on it. The BGM started and the improvised dance show began with only five audience & one baby.
"Goohhn, ghoon.... ". With the low sound, his body gradually moved, with his face half covered by the black hood, very silently but fast. I felt like I was looking a spirit, a soul. The image of "universe" came to me, and I knew it's a real person who moved just in front of me, but I didn't feel his personality anymore. It was close to see "Noh(能) play" Japanese traditional performance. Sometimes it was a tiger, and sometimes the gravity went away.
I hold Sana in my arms, and surprising enough she gazed at his performance through the end, sometimes shaking her body and close to cry, but again focus...
Don't know how many minutes have gone, silently Go kun stopped his movement and showed his face and said "Thank you" with his nice smile. The special moment ended.
Our stay have started with such a great encounter. How can I expect such a good start more than this? I now just feel this month will be super-duper! Tomoko san and Go kun left us a piece of note when they left KAIYU which said "Good bye and we'll meet again." Yep, I too think we will meet them soon :).
Here is Go kun's homepage. There'll be lots of performance in Tokyo this month!
