Sanseiyonseikai is a Japanese dance and taiko group directed by Linda Hashimoto, in Roseville, Minnesota. The group meets regularly at the Crossroads Center, where the kids and adults practice many forms of Japanese dance. The youth group and adult group are made up of many nationalities and people of various cultural heritages. Authentic costumes are worn by the members for performances and practices, to enrich the ethnic experience.

Music to accompany the dancers is authentic as well as the props and costumes of the dancers and players. Members do traditional matsuri (festival) dances and bon odori, (lantern festival dance) with accompaniment taiko. The group performs Japanese dance and taiko in the St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN. area and hopes to travel someday to bring this exciting experience to other communities.

Sanseiyonseikai performs regularly at the "Asian-American Festival", at the Mn. State Capital grounds, St. Paul.
