Bunka no Hi | Japanese Culture Day

Sunday, November 3, 2019 | 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Bunka no Hi is a celebration of Japanese and Japanese American culture and heritage. A popular annual event hosted by the JCCCW, the schedule is filled with performances, cultural demonstrations, games, and other activities. It is a true community-wide event, with booths and informational displays from a variety of local groups, nonprofit organizations and a couple of vendors. No matter where your interests lie, Bunka no Hi will have something for everyone! This is a free event! 

The Japanese Cultural & Community Center of Washington is proud to present two new exhibits during this year's Bunka no Hi. The main exhibit will have visitors test their knowledge of the numerous and unique good luck symbols of Japan — from maneki-neko, or the "beckoning cat,” to the auspicious daruma dolls — there will be more than two-dozen symbols on display.  A new photo exhibit of images from Camp Minidoka will educate attendees with then and now photos of the former incarceration camp where many Seattle-area Japanese Americans were forcibly relocated to during World War II.
