The Country of Samba

I think Brazil is a brilliant country, because this country is famous for samba. I have never seen the samba before my eyes, but on TV. When I saw it the first time, I was surprised at the women who wore gorgeous costumes that exposed their skin so much. But at the same time, I was deeply moved by the powerful dance. They kept a smile while they performed the dance.

When they dance the samba, they wear high-heeled shoes. I stumble even walking when I put on the shoes. I was impressed by their superb footwork. It must be necessary to do such hard practice. The samba looks bright, but behind the scenes it is a backbreaking effort.

If I get a chance to see the samba at close range, I want to feel that heated atmosphere.

Samba in Tokyo
by: Gary Wolff

I agree with you, Yuka. The samba is a beautiful dance.

If you'd like to see live samba in Tokyo, I recommend 2 places:

1) The Saci Perrere Brazilian restaurant in Yotsuya, where they sometimes have live samba dance shows, and

2) The Samba Matsuri held in August in Asakusa, where you can see a long parade of gorgeous samba dancers

Thanks for your story...
