FUKUOKA, Japan—The Abbot of a Japanese Buddhist temple, Furukawa Ryuji, saw Shen Yun Performing Arts at the Fukuoka Sunpalace Hall in Fukuoka, Japan, on March 15. He had abundant praise for Shen Yun.

Abbot Furukawa said, “Today’s show is distinctive. The actors’ performing techniques are superb. The music is very much in harmony with the stage performances. I feel quite marvelous. The program, Wu Song Battles the Tiger, can be understood without using language. The story is presented in a clever and refined way.”

Abbot Furukawa particularly enjoyed the live Orchestra. He said, “It’s magnificent. Its coordination with the performance on the stage is just perfect. In short, it is completely beyond my imagination.”

He said that in Shen Yun’s artistic performance, he felt the value of freedom and peace, which is beyond language, race or any kind of thoughts; it also demonstrates the heavenly principle that good and evil are rewarded accordingly. Abbot Furukawa said the dance Nothing Can Block the Divine Path is very educational. "People with righteous faith are rewarded with good things. The evil doers are actually the most pathetic. Their souls become filthier every time they do evil deed. They eventually will be punished by God and they should be punished for their crime,” he said. He will recommend more people to see Shen Yun next year.

Abbot Furukawa said that he is from Iizuka City, Fukuoka Prefecture. He picked up a booklet about the Shen Yun performance and was attracted by what it said, so immediately decided to see the show.
