Matsuri!!! 祭り?Let’s do this!!

Matsuri 2014お祭りだ〜!!
It’s that time of the year!! JSA presents Matsuri, Japanese cultural festival!

At Stevenson Event Center, more than 100 students and facilities came to enjoy wonderful food made by our wonderful staff members. Foods include california rolls and yakitori. To get a little taste, we included Ramune in our menu (which was a big hit for a lot of people!).

Performances featured Watsonville Taiko, Kendo Club, Aikido Club, and JK Dance Group!

Great success!!! Enjoy few of the photos below :)

Last but not least, thank you everyone for coming to the event!! I hope everyone was able to experience some Japanese culture. This is just a small scale festival run by students, but maybe one day, when you go visit Japan, you can experience the festival there (since there are a lot, and I mean A LOT of festivals!)

Last but not least, thank you to all the staff members to make this event successful!! Hope to see you all next year, and congratulation to the graduating students!!!
