The only member in the ON stage from Shizuoka City, Yusaku Mochizuki entertained us with the combination of tap dance and diabolo.
There was a huge crowd waiting for the hometown performer, although slight drops of rain started to drop in the area.
Of course, he knew about Daidogei since his childhood, and every year, he gets overexcited this time around at the year.
He experienced the first Daidogei festival around the age of three, and started performing in the Daidogei around 1999 in a yo-yo competition.
He learned about imaging arts during his university life, and he performed as a guest in a dinner party celebrating the 50th anniversary of Tokyo Olympics, which was sponcered by the Prime Minister.
One thing that he kept in his mind is to enjoy his performance, since if he focuses too much on his skills, he cannot express himself well.
He tap danced to keep us in, and as time passed by, he started to add the number of diabolo,increasing from 4 to 5 to 7.
He had many tricks that he mastered, such as spreading the string around back and forth, and juggling the diabolo like a ball.
The most entertaining trick was when he threw a diabolo high in the air, and just as when the diabolo safely reached in the string, a large applause came from the crowd.
He feels priviledged about getting to perform in the Japan Cup.
In the evening show, he would perform using the knowledge of imaging arts.
He would keep you entertained with a different kind of show, so don't miss out the night show from 7 pm!
I guessed, bad weather prevented us from better show time...
But the result is absolutely opposite, very badly in a sense.
Due to the heavy rain, performer needed too much concentration
to achieve their best performance. So in result, they showed
better performance than their usual one, I think!
Of course performers were exhausted to do with bad condition.
But finally, they brought great impression with exciting & fun.

Andrey and Fred appears on stage, engaging in a
fierce battle. Trying to take control of the microphone,
Andrey plays tricks on Fred. In a matter of minutes,
the two becomes soaked with water from head to toe.
As the performance continues, the story takes a different
turn and the two becomes friendly to each other. At the end,
the beauty Zarina appears and the three sings in harmony.
"There are many battles in life, and there will be times
when you will win and lose. However, you will surely be
able to build friendship at the end," says Andrey.
As portrayed in the Jigalov Show, we all know we will have as
much battles as we have encounters in life. The important part is
to understand each other and come together to help each other
regardless of the differences that people have.
But it is natural that you would want to win the heart of a
person you love. So I will tell you a little secret.
Zarina prefers a man with a "good heart."
If you want to capture the heart of a beauty,
work on your inner personality!!
