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. The next one won’t be held for another five years, but you can see individual floats from different regions of the city at local festivals next spring.

Penang, Malaysia: Part 2

More photos from our event in Penang, Malaysia! For the second year, we held a joint cultural collaboration with the local Phor Tay high school. It was a wonderful opportunity to see local dance and drumming performances, and share a bit of Japanese culture with the students.


We received these wonderful photos from Daniel and his wife Yoshimi, who joined us at the June culture fair, enjoying the full men’s and women’s kimono. Thank you for coming out, guys!
