About Aki Matsuri
Aki Matsuri festival event was founded in 2010 by Robert Higashinaka who wanted to boost awareness about the growing Japanese population in Las Vegas. “Aki Matsuri” are the Japanese words for “fall festival”, and has been celebrated in the Las Vegas valley each October. The event attracts more than 10,000 people annually and features traditional culture, music and food. The visiting groups from Japan, as well as the local talent, are not paid for their performances, nor are the visiting groups compensated for their travel expenses.

JFAN appreciates the enthusiasm of everyone who volunteers to make this event a success year after year.
