Saturday After Dark - The Way of the Samurai
It is the mid-Edo period. The emperor, Donarudo, has begun closing Japan off to the outside world, with only certain approved visitors allowed to the land of the rising sun. The people of Japan have begun looking back at traditional ways; a romantic, majestic reinvention of the days of old emerging. To promote the art and beauty of Japan, the emperor, along with his empress, Airiin, has decreed a festival to be held honouring Japanese culture and entertainment. However, clans wishing to destabilize the nation to take it over causing unrest and threatening to disrupt this festival. Emperor Donarudo, through the Tan Shogunate, has ordered a militia be created to protect all attendees and guests of this festival, and thus the Sakuragumi, or Cherry Blossom Militia, was formed.
When the hatamoto of Sakuragumi are not patrolling the festival or dealing with upstart troublemakers, you can find them at the Sakura Chaya, the Cherry Blossom Teahouse, enjoying tea, snacks, and regaling festival goers with tales and music. Come spend time under the entertainment and protection of the Sakuragumi. Be served custom tea and themed snacks. Meet Princess Ari and Prince Nekorai and watch their antics with their samurai protectors. Be charmed by the lovely handmaiden Erizabesu as she tries to keep Neko-no-miya out of trouble and Ari-no-miya from killing the crown prince. Enjoy a view into the world of Ukiyo, or the Edo period "Floating World" and Wakashudo, sometimes known as just Shudo and also Nanshoku, the Way of Beautiful Young Men, which is the fine art and appreciation of historical yaoi.
Dressing in Japanese wear is encouraged! Any period is welcome. It doesn't have to specifically be samurai/Edo period. Wa Loli attire is especially welcome along with samurai/geisha attire. A contest will be held for the best dressed Japanese-themed outfit, both male and female, with prizes for each category winner!
