Toranpu-man lecture

I went to a lecture with the Japanese magician going by the stage name Toranpu-man (toranpu is Japanese for playing card, from the word "trump").

Before they let us know that photographing was forbidden, I took a picture of the other people listening. Apparently, Toranpu-man performs wearing a mask and no one is supposed to know what he looks like, so you could not take pictures. He is not in my picture, so I figure it is OK to blog about it.

There were about 50 people listening to the lecture, which was a lot more than I had thought would be interested. Lots of beginner magicians in their 50:ies, it seemed.
