This series shows a yawatashi by Satake Mariko (hanshi 8-dan) at the 2009 EKF seminar in Frankfurt. Ishikawa Takeo (hanshi, 8-dan) is kaizoe. Unfortunately the event is chopped up into short pieces rather than showing the entire ceremony, but it is still very good and I particularly like this one. Notice the eyes, and how smooth she is… the hassetsu are seamless.
