the Childrenfrom Orlando Children's Home were visited by world renowned Japanese artists yesterday.
In celebration of South Africa and Japan's centennial relations, two Japanese groups - Aga-Shio and Za Ondekoza - decided to share some of their skills with the children.
The artists taught the children how to make their own musical instruments and they also played together thereafter.
The two groups will perform at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival, which runs till July 4.
Orlando Children's Home houses 61 children in the home and 97 in the crèche, which includes community children and has had a close relationship with the Japanese since 1990.
"The Japanese people are the unsung heroes of this children's home. We are an extension of Tokyo," says Solani Miriam Mazibuko of the home.
An excited Emily Njayi, a 10-year-old from the home, said: "We had so much fun. I am so happy they are leaving us some instruments to play with."
Centennial celebrations will continue throughout the year and will include the Durban International Film festival featuring Japanese films from July to August as well as the planting of 100 cherry blossom trees around the country.
