Recorded the Daikomei Festival held at Tokyo Budokan on December 4-6, 2001.
The Daikomei Festival is a seminar held in Japan where the Soke teaches the martial arts of the Bujinkan to the high-ranking younger brothers of the world after the birthday of Masaaki Hatsumi at the end of the year. It is held to conclude the seminars held all over the world under the name of "TAIKAI", which is a daily practice in Japan, and to disclose the theme of the next year's practice. High-ranking younger brothers and Taketomo who represent each country from dozens of countries around the world come to visit. The martial arts transmitted by living oral traditions are transmitted to the world through high-ranking younger brothers. However, "TAIKAI" ended in 2003. Masaaki Hatsumi will no longer go abroad.
