Josh studied with Koryu Nishikawa V, (Fifth-generation traditional Japanese master puppeteer of Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Theater, and designated National Intangible Folk Treasure of Japan,) Josh will give a presentation on traditional cart puppetry on Family Day, May 6, at the Cherry Blossom Festival.
