Kodomo No Hi from hawaii on Vimeo.
The "Kodomo No Hi" Keiki Fun Fest at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii. An early island celebration of Japan's "Children's Day," with arts and crafts, food (including KC Waffle Dogs), demonstrations and performances, and formal kimono dressing for kids.
The above is the embedded video player from Vimeo, one of the few online video hosts to serve up HD content. To see the HD video (and not a scaled and compressed Flash version), however, you need to view it at Vimeo or download the original movie file (128MB/1250x720/MP4). It should look great on an Apple TV.
You can also watch this video via low quality but fast loading Flash players at YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo! Video, Viddler, and Blip TV. And several versions of this video (including high-definition MPEG-4 and DivX) can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
