Japanese Students' Association is organizing a staple of summer in Japan for all of you! Omatsuri, literally meaning "festival," is a type of event that occurs most commonly throughout the summer months, though they do happen in other seasons. Omatsuri has roots in cultural connections, as many are celebrations for holidays and religious beliefs. If you go to Japan, you will never see a festival without fireworks, and goldfish-catching in a large inflated pool. You'll see street food stalls lined up, and people chatting everywhere with many dressed in "yukata," casual summer kimono typically made of cotton and popular for Omatsuri.
Want to experience a taste of what Japan has to offer? On Friday, October 26th, from 1-4 pm in Hirst Lounge, you'll be able to! Whether you're stressed from studying for midterms, or you're needing a break, or you just want to eat some free sushi and enjoy yourself, come to experience the fun and excitement of Omatsuri!
Excited? Nervous? Fascinated? We know you are! Come join us Friday, October 26th, from 1-4 pm in Hirst Lounge. Whether it's for 5 minutes or 50, we'd love to have you there.
*JSA is SA funded.*
