Buyo dancer for 86 years, Sahomi Tachibana (interviewed in "Hidden Legacy"), who also taught classical Japanese dance at Topaz and Tule Lake concentration camps, brought her skills in choreography to the animated film, "Kubo and the Two Strings", the Academy Award nominee for best animated film. It is the first animated film to be nominated for two Oscars, at the academy awards, and the second stop motion film to be nominated for Visual effects, the first being A nightmare before Christmas. Choreography assisted by Akemi Kanegae and Angela Kanegae.
