JapanFest, now in its 36th year, typically draws crowds exceeding 20,000. Organized by the Japan Chamber of Commerce and the Japan America Society of Georgia and supported by the Consulate General of Japan in Atlanta, the festival promotes understanding between Japanese and Americans in the Southeast. JapanFest will be held September 16th Sat. and 17th Sun at Gas South Convention Center, Duluth, GA.
This year's theme is "Experience Japan," and we plan to offer many hands-on experiences such as Zen, Sumo, an art of swordsmanship, traditional candy art, Ikebana, Bonsai, Sado, and more for visitors. Also, we would love to have students learning Japanese to help us out as a volunteer.
