First of its kind in Arlington County
“Japan Day” is a one-day culture event with hands-on experiences of Japanese arts, food and music. It features live performances and demonstrations such as Kendama, Origami, Karate, tea ceremonies, cosplay, and anime. Collaborating with local Japanese businesses, information booths showcase world-class technologies and engineering as well as Japanese culinary culture. Promoting Japanese language among high school students, it provides Japanese study help. The event also commemorates a newly formed sister school relationship between the Arlington Career Center and the Engei High School of Setagaya, Tokyo. The event is endorsed by the Embassy of Japan.
The event will feature live performances such as Okinawa Eisaa (drum and dance), jumbo calligraphy demonstrations, Kendama performances, and more!
We are also excited and honored to welcome representatives from Tokyo Engei High School to celebrate a newly formed sister-school relationship between the Arlington Career Center and Tokyo Metropolitan Engei High School.
