Japanese Fan Dance performed at the Trafalgar Square Japan Matsuri, (c) Carole Edrich 2013

I shot this fan dancer – on a rather large plinth, you’ll note – at the 2013 Japan Matsuri at Trafalgar Square earlier this year. It was suggested by Ms Hedgehog. Fan dancing is an aspect of the Mai tradition of Japanese dancing.

Next week the word will be meep.
