Bunka no Hi (Japanese Culture Day) is a holiday in Japan celebrating Japanese culture. At the JCCCW, Bunka no Hi is a free-to-attend cultural festival dedicated to celebrating, commemorating, and educating the public about Japanese and Japanese American culture in the Seattle area.

The theme of this year’s Bunka no Hi festival will be “Explore Cultural Art through Japanese Language!” Discover Japan’s unique forms of art and expression with activities like haiku poetry and calligraphy, as well as live performances of kamishibai and recorded performances of rakugo storytelling. Look forward to presentations of other cultural arts as well, including karate, taiko drumming, classical dance, and much more! We have a special guest this year — Lori Matsukawa, Emmy-award winning journalist and founding member of the Nikkei Heritage Association of Washington (NHAW). Matsukawa will have a reading and signing event for her new children’s book, ‘Brave, Mrs. Sato’. The Hosekibako Japanese Resale Shop located on-site will also be open during the event.

*Please check our website for more information as the event approaches.

We are looking for volunteers to help with preparations, as well as on the day of the event. The sign-up form is expected to become available in early October at www.jcccw.org/bunka-no-hi so please check back for more details!
