Under the guidance of Sensei (teacher) Tokie Sidney, 20 St. Anthony students recently won this year's Honolulu Festival Maui Mikoshi Design Contest, earning them a trip to O'ahu to showcase their mikoshi at the 18th Annual Honolulu Festival held on Saturday, March 3, and at the Waikiki Grand Parade along Kalakaua Avenue on Sunday, March 4.

A mikoshi is a decorative float unique to specific prefectures in Japan that is carried by groups of celebrants during festivals. "We applaud the students and Sensei Sidney for their commitment to perpetuating the Japanese culture," said Keiichi Tsujino, president of the Honolulu Festival Foundation.
