Little Tokyo Community Open House / Skid Row-Kyo Public Ondo Sunday July 2, 2017 from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm at Centenary in Little Tokyo / DTLA.  In the spirit of culture and community, FREE event, all welcome to attend. 

Serving a "potluck style" lunch at 12:30 pm, no need to bring food just an appetite to share in fellowship and good times with community friends and neighbors.  This is a "indoor" event so don't worry about the summer heat.  However, we will have our 3rd Street Open Space available for those who wish to just "hang out" and watch the sights of Skid Row-Kyo. 

FREE entertainment, games and contests will take place through out the event.  Lunch time entertainment will be provided by "Mx'd Plate" a motley band of musically inclined friends who share a love of fun, food, and the Hawaiian Spirit.  However, they are not fearful of tackling a variety of genres, so don't be surprised!!!  Mx'd Plate expresses many thanks to the community for the opportunity and to share a big "ALOHA!!!" with everyone… 

Other entertainment includes a "Open Mic", free games with prizes for all ages and a public Ondo / Bon Odori starting at 3:15 pm (2nd dance session at 4 pm.)  The first dance session will include a "Ondo Cash Dance" where someone participating in the ondo has a opportunity to win a $100 cash prize.  This event has taken place annually for the last 5 years (reminder – no local obons on this day – "another chance to dance" opportunity.)  This FREE event is our way of thanking the community for all the support they provide to us and our missions.  Skid Row-Kyo Mission: 

Help us help others.  On the day of the Open House we are collecting bottled water for our neighbors of Skidrow.  On the day of the Open House drop off any size bottled water.  Bring a bottle, bring a case, all quantities greatly appreciated.  Packaged snack foods is another item that can be dropped off at the Open House and "shared" with our neighbors.  Water and packaged snack foods will be directly distributed to our neighbors on the streets.  Skid Row-kyo Mission – Non religious, non profit fellowship group based out of Centenary United Methodist Church in Little Tokyo (Downtown Los Angeles / DTLA.) "Skid Row-kyo" refers to the section of Downtown Los Angeles where the "Spirit and Culture" of Little Tokyo, the "Creativity, Imagination and Inspiration" of the Artist District and the "Compassion and Humanity" of Los Angeles's Skid Row District intersect bringing the three community's together in harmony, solidarity and unity. 

Check Skid Row-Kyo out on the Web at:  https://www.skidrow-kyo.org/ or on Facebook at:  https://www.facebook.com/people/Skid-Row-Kyo/100015471136626.  Feel free in contacting us at skidrowkyo@gmail.com or Wesley Nishinaka at wnishinaka@aol.com.  Feel free to invite others.  See everyone on Sunday July 2nd in the spirit of culture and community.
