Japanese community shares culture, builds bonds

MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan -- Abe Terumasa (right) shows Tiarra Erby how to perform the next stitch in her kogin embroidery during Japan Day April 4, 2009. Kogin embroidery is a hand-stitching technique originating in Northern Japan to re-enforce fabric to withstand the cold, but has grown into an art form that still survives today.
