I saw a poster of this event yesterday as I was heading for home. This event is scheduled for tomorrow. I want to goooo!!! There is a crafts and food stall at the fair, and that is where I want to be.
This is the introductory message at the Asia:NZ website:
On Saturday 11 July Wellingtonians will get a chance to celebrate Japanese culture at the inaugural Japan Festival of Wellington featuring food stalls, local and overseas performers, fashion shows, children’s entertainment and competitions.
Bring along family or friends and relax in the tranquil ambience of the age-old Japanese tea ceremony, try your hand at writing a haiku poem or take part in a competition to roll New Zealand’s longest sushi.
Looks like a wonderful Festival. And as with most things Japanese, I expect that this will be a fun, colorful, and memorable event. kawaii! Visit Asia:NZ for more information.
