Nisei Week Chado DemonstrationJapanese American Cultural & Community Center – JACCCAugust 10 (SAT) and 11 (SUN), 2019
Nisei Week (二世週祭 Nisei-shū Matsuri) is an annual festival celebrating Japanese American culture and history in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Nisei means 2nd generation in Japanese, describing the first American born Japanese, a group which the nine-day festival was originally meant to attract. Though named for the Nisei generation, Nisei Week is no longer targeted at Niseis, nor is the festival still contained within a week. Nisei Week Foundation president for 2006, Michelle Suzuki, described the festival as “the opportunity for people of all backgrounds to celebrate Japanese heritage and culture”. UTLAA will participate multiple Chado demonstrations.
Demonstration time: 11:00, 11:45, 12:30, 1:15, 2:00, 2:45, 3:30
$5 for Japanese sweets and a bowl of tea (Tickets to be sold at the door)
