This guy was hanging out in Yoyogi park in Harajuku, Tokyo, on a Sunday afternoon. He has clearly practiced a lot! I loved the music he played during his performance. My friends and I were completely mesmerized. He has a very expressive face too, with a charming smile… it really sells the show in the end. Made me feel like a little kid. UPDATE: This video has been up for nearly a year now and I have some information that some of my viewers will appreciate. First, the juggler’s name is Okotanpe – and yes he’s amazing – one of my favorite memories of Japan! Second, the song that he uses in his final act is called ソレイユ (soreiyu, spelled using katakana, meaning sun, is the Japanese pronunciation of the French word “soleil”, also meaning sun). It is sung by Yoshie Nakano 中納良恵. Here’s a link to the video: www.youtube.com The beginning of the song is by UA (ううあ) and it comes from an old Japanese folk song: www.youtube.com Here are the traditional lyrics: www.cameraslens.com I don’t know exactly what size ball Okotanpe uses in this video (other users have suggested that it is 95mm – 100mm), but you’re welcome to ask him. Here’s his youtube page: www.youtube.com Also, here’s his official webpage: okotanpe.com Here’s where you can buy a crystal ball pouch like Pakkun welovegreen.ocnk.net If you’re interested in contact juggling, check out this online community: www.contactjuggling.org Hope this info helps!
