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! 

This year the 'J' is proud to present two exhibits during Bunka no Hi. “Travel to Japan" will offer useful travel tips for those hoping to explore the Land of the Rising Sun, especially with the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo right around the corner. An additional exhibit will focus on "Nisei Daughter," an autobiography by Monica Sone, a Seattle-born Japanese American.

JCCCWでは毎年「文化の日」を開催し、日本や日系アメリカ人の文化や伝統をご紹介しています。内容は音楽や踊りのパフォーマンス、武道などの実演、生け花の展示、ゲーム、紙芝居その他の楽しい企画がいっぱいです。また各種日系団体のブースや食べ物の販売もあります。


さらに、今年のメイン企画は、2020年に東京オリンピックを控えて日本への旅行に役立つ情報の展示と、シアトル出身の日系二世モニカ・ソネの自伝、"Nisei Daughter (日系二世の娘)"をご紹介する展示です。入場無料ですのでお気軽にお立ち寄りください。
