2017年11月30日 : 2018 Events
It has been a very eventful year for JFF - in addition to launching a new series of Japanese culture fairs, we have also been planning multiple overseas events to bring Japanese culture to a wider global audience. In particular, we are looking forward to the Japan Folk Festival in Prague, scheduled for March 3rd-4th of next year. We're currently coordinating with a number of amazing performers, artists, and craftsmen from throughout Japan, and are also excited to be showcasing local Czech performers as part of the festival. We are also excited to announce our participation in the 2018 Sakura Days Fair in Vancouver, scheduled for mid-April.

As we prepare for our upcoming events, we'll be taking a couple of months off from our regularly scheduled culture fair. Check back soon for upcoming dates. We look forward to hearing from you!

2017年10月11日 : Handa Dashi Festival
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Handa Dashi Festival last weekend! We had an amazing time seeing the 31 floats lined up and even pulling one of them through town.
