Juggling around the world.

These episodes are a video series created by WATANABE Hisashi, a physical researcher and circus artist who is the founder of the Atama to Kuchi company that has performed in more than 15 countries.

This is about the adventures of a juggling monster, Ojami-hyon, who appears and performs in various places around the world. (In the dialect of western Japan, beanbag balls used by jugglers are known as “ojami.”)

Presented by: The Japan Foundation (JF) (https://www.jpf.go.jp/e/)

This is the place where the juggling monster Ojami-hyons are born.
Will the person playing with beanbag balls in a white space be a new Ojami-hyon?
