Japanese Cultural Fair

2017 JCF Poster

Mission Plaza overflows with the celebration of Japanese music, traditional dance, food and crafts at this popular annual festival. Powerful drummers, the San Francisco Taiko Dojo thrill the audience, along with storytellers, martial arts demonstrations and healing arts vendors. Sushi, noodles and green tea ice cream are always favorites. For more info call Chieko Yoshikawa 831-462-4589. FREE!
