Sakazuki – Kineya Saritsu and Hanayagi Mitsujyuro

Sakazuki-goto is a ritual of exchanging sake cups as a means of pledging loyalty. On Sunday April 29, 2012, the natori of both the Hanayagi and Kineya schools gathered at Natsunoya Teahouse to welcome the newest members of their artistic families. Kineya Saritsu (Alyssa Erika Fujihara) and Hanayagi Mitsujyuro (Bryson Teruo Goda) both recently took their shiken (test) to receive their natori names and this ceremony officially welcomed them into the schools as a sister and brother to all the other members.
