The Shibata Mt. Eden Nursery Tea Garden in Hayward will once again be the site for the National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS)’s annual fall community event on Sunday, September 21, 2008 11am to 4pm.
This year’s theme, Cultural Connections: Global Engagement/Activism pursues a new understanding of the extension and connectivity of the Nikkei diaspora. Cultural Connections: Global Engagement/Activism will also pay tribute to Grace and Yoshimi Shibata and the many flower growing families over the many years who have contributed so much dedicated work and leadership to Northern California’s Nikkei Community and horticultural industry as a whole.
Also featured will be exciting cultural performances by the Berkeley Genyu-kai Okinawan performance ensemble led by Dr. Wesley Ueunten and Tsukimi-kai Intercultural Exchange group featuring taiko (drumming) and the Shisa (lion) dance.
A complete bento (Japanese box lunch) will be available for order for the enjoyment of friends and family. Proceeds of the Garden Party shall benefit NJAHS’ programs and its fiscally sponsored groups, the Japanese Peruvian Oral History Project and Tsukimi-Kai. $35 per person, $65 per couple.
