The JCCC will be opening their doors to everyone as they celebrate a fun weekend filled with activities, entertainment and exhibits all associated with the many festivals celebrated across Japan in the Spring!!
This year we are excited to be focusing some of our activities on the theme of Anime. From Astro Boy to Pokemon; from Studio Ghibli to Disney; from books to films and toys; anime has a presence across the world. It is an art form that inspires creativitiy as well as fanatical devotion and the JCCC hopes to explore some of these facets during our festival. Haru Matsuri will also include Japanese arts and crafts demonstrations such as Ikebana (flower arranging), Bunka Shishu (embroidery), Sumi-e (brush painting) and more.
The JCCC’s martial artists will demonstrate the techniques of “The Way of the Warrior” through Aikido, Karate, Jodo, Iaido, Naginata, Kyudo and Kendo. For entertainment, there will be odori (traditional Japanese dancing) by JCCC traditional dance groups Ayame-Kai, Himawari Buyo Kai and Sakura-Kai, Koto and Shamisen by the Kiri Koto Ensemble and Taiko (Japanese drumming). Japanese cuisine will also be available in the food court.
As always, the JCCC entrance will feature an elaborate display of intricate Hina Matsuri Dolls. For a small fee visitors can have the opportunity to dress in traditional costume then head on over to the display to take their own photos. Gather your family and friends and come to the JCCC, and join us as we celebrate the arrival of Spring!
