Japan Fest 2016 (Aki Matsuri)

October 16, 2016, 11:00am

Japanese Tea Garden

On Sunday, October 16, 2016, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Japanese Tea Gardens, the Japan-America Society of San Antonio invites the public to the 2016 Japan Fest. Admission will be $3 for adults and FREE for kids. The purpose of the event is to celebrate Japanese culture and to help San Antonio’s Sister City, Kumamoto, recover from major earthquake damage earlier this year. Congressman Joaquin Castro, who is particularly engaged with Japan-America relations, will be our special guest. He stated: “I look forward to attending Japan Fest 2016 to celebrate San Antonio’s close ties with the people of Japan and bring awareness to the continued earthquake rebuilding efforts underway in our Sister City Kumamoto.” This year’s theme is “Rebuilding the Castle.” Visitors will have the opportunity to tour some of Kumamoto’s iconic features and help to rebuild Kumamoto Castle, which was severely damaged by the earthquake. The construction of the Castle was begun over 500 years ago, and it is one of the three most important castles in Japan. The castle is as important to Kumamoto and Japan as the Alamo is to Texas and the United States. Appealing to visitors of all ages, the Japan Fest features fun, food, and entertainment. In the historic area of the Japanese Tea Garden at Brackenridge Park, there will be the opportunity to see Japanese entertainers, find games for younger visitors, and enjoy the fantasy world of cosplay. In addition, food booths will offer delicacies from Asia, and vendors will have a wide variety of unusual goods. Our festival wouldn't be possible without the help of our amazing volunteers. If you'd like to help make Japan Fest a big success, visit bit.ly/2bP29bz to sign up for a shift. Japan-America Society of San Antonio, or JASSA, was established in 1985 to foster increased understanding and cooperation between the citizens of San Antonio and Japan. As a non-profit, educational, and cultural group, we strive to make Japanese culture better known in San Antonio.
