Japan Festival Boston had a booth promoting Japan Festival at the Celebration of the Birthday of His Majesty the Emperor on December 1, 2016-
Participating members at the booth included myself (Kei), Yumi, (second left) and Akiko (pictured left). Michi, the MC from last year’s event as well as Miyo, our volunteer coordinator came to visit us at the booth and help us promote the festival.
We also were joined by many other notable people in our community, like Etsuko and Kazu; our Co-presidents, Mr. Hisao Nakatsuka and Mr. Yasuo Kubota; president and vice president of the Japanese Association of Greater Boston, as well as the Consulate General of Japan in Boston, Mr. Rokuichiro Michii; and members of the Consulate General of Japan in Boston.
The feedback was overwhelmingly positive- and we learned that there are many groups and people in our community want to get involved with the festival, and help us bring YOU a wonderful and immersive Matsuri experience. If you would like to help us you can do so by filling out this survey, registering to volunteer on the day of the festival- We’ll keep you posted to let you know when the registration form goes live!
We will also be accepting donations in all denominations. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to donate to our cause.
