(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Japan participated in the 18th annual Summer Festival of Inazawa, in Aichi Prefecture, on July 28, 2013. Practitioners began teaching the Falun Gong exercises free of charge at 10:00 a.m., and gave out fliers with information about Falun Gong and the persecution. The practitioners made paper lotus flowers with “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” printed on them, and handed them out. Those who received these beautiful gifts were excited. Many were curious about the practice as they watched the exercises.

The practitioners performed a traditional Chinese Lion Dance, Fan Dace, and Silk Ribbon Dance, on the stage in the afternoon. They also demonstrated the first Falun Dafa exercise. At the end of the day, Mr. Ito, who was in charge of the festival thanked the practitioners and said, “Please come back next year!”
