Spring Japanese Culture Festival

YL, Arbor View, D28W

One of our club's favorite volunteering events we did would be the Spring Japanese Culture Festival where we helped run and set up the event. It was so entertaining to see and learn about such a spirited and lively culture. We helped sell handmade origami made by the elder Japanese community and promoted other items while telling people about other activities could enjoy such as the tea ceremony, calligraphy, flower arrangement, and clothing events. There were many singers, dancers, and multiple different performers to help represent the Japanese culture. Everything there was very fun and entertaining to experience in person. In addition, some members of our club are currently taking Japanese language courses at our school and it helped them practice and use the knowledge from the classes. Everyone at the festival was so welcoming and time flew by so fast to the point we didn’t realize we were there for over ten hours.
