This is Akihiro Yanai at The Japanese Juggling Festival.
Yanai Apparently won first prize at the festival which is apparently very rare for a contact juggler.
Now I enjoy watching a good round of juggling as much as the next girl. But for my money contact juggling is where it’s at.
Oh and, just in case you’re wondering, no Contact Jugglers don’t use those Fushigi balls that you saw in those annoying commercials. Those things are a scam.
Contact jugglers work long and hard at their art learning to control the ball and other objects with careful and precise movements.
