Tenkara Acrobats Troupe Revival

テンカラ雑技団復活 [Tenkara zatsugi-dan fukkatsu] Tenkara Acrobats Revival.

Found the link to Tenkara Acrobats (Troupe) Revival in the most recent Dr Ishigaki blog post. It seems to be new. Maybe in the future there will be things of general interest. Only two linked post thus far.

However, google translate doesn’t seem to like translating the webpages.
Maybe some kind of new type of coding used on the webpage. Sometimes after a long delay the translation will appear, other times after a delay it returns an error message, page not found. Or if it works the pictures are stripped out.

They appear to have a worthy goals.

平成の時代が [ Heisei era ]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heisei
The Heisei era [Japanese]: 平成 [Hepburn]: Heisei refers to the period of [Japanese] history corresponding to the reign of Emperor [Akihito] from 8 January 1989 until his [abdication] on 30 April 2019.

令和の時代が [Reiwa era]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reiwa

Reiwa ([Japanese]: 令和 is the era that began on 1 May 2019, the day on which Emperor [Akihito]'s elder son, [ascended the throne] as the 126th [Emperor of Japan].

The [Japanese Foreign Ministry] provided an [English-language] interpretation of Reiwa as “beautiful harmony”,

Well, that explains Heisei and Reiwa eras. Why that signals a new wind blowing the the tenkara world, I think, is a Japanese culture thing not easily understood by others.
