JSA Matsuri 2012〜祭〜♪

UCSC Japanese Student Association presents our 2nd Annual 祭 “Matsuri”

JSA Matsuri 2012

Wednesday, May 30, 2012, from 8-11pm JSA will be holding our Matsuri at the Porter Dining Hall!

Matsuri is the Japanese word for “Festival.” In traditional Japanese culture, we have different festivals for different occasions and some of them are with shrines or temples, while others are secular.

JSA would like to share a more traditional side of Japanese culture by creating this Matsuri on a smaller scale.

It’s open to everyone!! Don’t be afraid to come to Matsuri because you’re not Japanese!

The entrance fee is free!! So come check it out!

At our Matsuri we will have:
-variety of Japanese food booths
-Japanese drinks
-Japanese game booths
-Japanese Photo ((Purikura)) booth
-Performances by: Watsonville Taiko, UCSC Aikido Club, & Shamisen by Kyle Abbott!
-Traditional Japanese dancing at the end!

We will be selling tickets at the door, so that you can buy one or more tickets to eat, play games, take purikura, etc!

Also, if you have a Yukata or a Happi wear it to the event!♪ (^ω^)

JSA has been working really hard to put on the event and we hope that you guys will come support us so that we can make it an annual event!
