Celebrations broke out all over the U.S., but perhaps none were more poignant than the festival in Obama, Japan in the Fukui prefecture. (小浜)Proving that interest in this election was indeed of interest to the world community, citizens of Obama were thrilled when their same-name candidate was nominated; its citizens have followed the election as closely as any American. In addition to native dances, the Obama residents did their best to learn some Hawaiian dance moves to honor President Obama’s home.
Hopes are running high that President Obama will pay Obama, Japan an official state visit.
