Attendance at the festival is around 1000 people so please register your family prior to the event. Volunteers are also welcome, please indicate your interest with your registration.
The annual Summer Festival is a combination of both Tanabata and Obon. Tanabata is the Star Festival and people write their wishes on strips of fancy paper and display on bamboo trees signaling that summer has finally arrived and that summer vacation is just around the corner. For many Japanese, it would not be summer without Bon-odori (local folk dance) around a drum set.
The Nippon Club of the Triangle is registered with AmazonSmile. When you designate the Nippon Club as your favorite organization and make a purchase through AmazonSmile, then 0.5% of the purchase will be donated to the club. There is no additional cost to you.
The 2015 financial report has been added to the Club Reports page.
Observers are welcome. For the location and time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
