We will be offering delicious foods such as Udon, Teriyaki, Sushi, Chinese Chicken Salad, baked goods and other ethnic foods will be available for purchase.
Carnival type games for children and demonstrations of Judo, Karate, Kendo, Tea Ceremony and Minyo Odori will be held. Festival-type games, exhibits of calligraphy/Sumi-E, and schoolwork completed by Japanese School Students will be featured on both days.
After the demonstrations, please join in the Bon dances. Remember, Bon dances are dances of joy so we encourage anyone to jump in and show their style.
A former Valley Girl returning to her roots is Marisa Kosugi of Matsutoyo Kai and Minyo Station. She will be gracing us with her lovely presence and performing live for the second time on Saturday for the pleasure of the Ondo dancers and audience.
Returning on Sunday is the ever popular LA Matsuri Taiko who will fill the air with their exciting and thunderous sounds with a special performance during the Ondo break.
