Save the Date: Sushi Rolling 2013

Save the date!! Our annual Sushi Rolling event date has been set for Nov. 23rd!

The main purpose of this event is to welcome back the newly returned JETs and to network with one another but everyone studying Japanese, who is Japanese, did the JET Program, teaches Japanese, or just plain loves Japan is welcome to come!

Please join us in enjoying delicious sushi made from your own two hands! We will have our awesome sushi chef, Akira Shirai, back again this year to teach us the mastery skills of making sushi. Ask him to teach you how to make a roll with the rice on the outside if you haven’t already. Very cool!

Also, we plan on having our calligraphy sensei, Mamiko Ikeda, back again this year for the latter part of the event to teach us how to write our names, favorite kanji (Chinese characters), etc in the elegant brush strokes that is Japanese calligraphy. Come try it out and then make a nice finalized piece of artwork for yourself!

We also have other components for the event that are in the works as well. Stay tuned as we “unroll” the rest of the details for the sushi rolling!
