【Ornament】~Japan Fair Merchandise~

At Japan Fair 2017, there will be Japan Fair limited merchandise!
The ornament will be sold at the information booth near the entrances in the main exhibit hall. Each one will be $25, and only 50 of them will be available!

We are happy to say that Kusak Cut Glass Works has made this ornament for us, and Shizu Usami, a professional Japanese calligrapher, to write the kanji for us.

The kanji can be read as "ayumu". Ayumu means for things to be moving forward. As long as you don't give up, everything will move forward with even one small step at a time.

Get the limited Japan Fair ornament for yourself, your friends, or your family, but especially for the memories of the fair.

【Pepper the Robot】

Do you know Pepper? No, not salt and pepper! Pepper the robot! He’s a human-shaped robot that can talk, react, and interact with humans!

He’s not an ordinary robot either. Pepper is able to perceive your emotions! Isn’t that amazing?

Pepper will be coming to Japan Fair 2017!

Pepper the robot can be seen in many different places in Japan. Of course, Softbank stores have Pepper since Softbank Robotics is the one that invented Pepper. Aside from their own stores, Pepper can be found in banks and many other stores. Recently, Pepper has even become part of Japanese families in their homes. Since Pepper is able to perceive emotions, his personality changes based on the family and their interactions with him. If you talk to him often and treat him like a family member, he’ll have a lively, outgoing personality.

When Pepper comes to Japan Fair 2017, it will be his first time coming to the Pacific Northwest! Besides from having a booth where you can interact with Pepper, he will be hosting a seminar with the Pepper Engineer Team. The seminar will be held on Saturday, July 8th at 3:30 p.m. and on Sunday, July 9th at 12:00 p.m. Come by on either day to learn more about Pepper.

Don’t miss your chance to talk and interact with Pepper! And don’t forget to give him a warm welcome so he comes back to Seattle! Look, Pepper’s calling for you to come, too!

【Sake One & Hakutsuru】~Market Place Booth~

Did you see the Benefit Dinner post earlier? At the dinner, there will be complimentary Hakutsuru Sake offered by Saké One.

We are very grateful for both of their support.

The sake that Sake One has offered at the dinner is Hakutsuru Nishiki Junmai Daiginjo. This sake has won the Monde Selection Grand Gold Quality Award for the past 7 years from 2009 to 2016.



Sake One started as an importer of sake from Japan in the 90s, until soon becoming a sake brewery as well. Now, Sake One is one of only six sake brewery in America, and also imports the finest sake from Japan.

Both companies will have a booth at Japan Fair, so stop by and have a taste of their sake!

**************************************************************

Hakutsuru Saké:


Japan's #1 Selling Brand
Founded in 1743, Hakutsuru is one of the oldest saké producers in Japan and is located in the Nada district of Kobe,  a leading saké production area known throughout Japan. The name Hakutsuru means “white crane”. The Japanese crane’s reserved character and graceful appearance, and the cultural association of seeing the crane in flight as an auspicious sign, made the crane an ideal symbol to represent the excellent quality of Hakutsuru’s saké.

SakéOne:


Founded in 1992 and based in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, SakéOne is both a craft saké producer as well as an importer of premium Japanese saké. Our Oregon Craft brands include Momokawa, G Saké and our flavor-infused Moonstone saké. We currently represent six breweries from Japan including the category leader Hakutsuru Saké Brewing from Kobe. SakéOne will continue to add producers from a variety of prefectures in order to represent the most diverse and comprehensive saké portfolio in the trade. Our mission is to raise the national consciousness relative to premium saké, and to provide our customers outstanding and consistent products and service.

【Dinner Auction】~Friends of Japan Benefit Dinner~

Come join us for a night of drinks, dinner, and auction with live entertainment featuring renowned kokyu player Daisuke Kiba from Japan.

At the dinner, we will have both a Silent Auction and Live Auction. Many companies, organizations, and restaurants have supported us with their generous donations.

The items in the Silent Auction will include a night at Inn at the Market, an experience at Canlis, and an experience at Sushi Kashiba.

Recognized by Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast, Inn at the Market is a tranquil hideaway, just steps away from the vibrant atmosphere of Pike Place Market and the Seattle Waterfront.

Canlis invites you to dinner. Canlis’ favorite thing in the world is taking care of others, and few places can do it quite like Canlis. A truly unparalleled dinner experience.

Sushi Kashiba is owned by Chef Shiro Kashiba; pioneer of Edo-mae sushi in Seattle. Eat at the counter of Sushi Kashiba in front of Chef Shiro for a once in a lifetime experience.


The items for the Live Auction will include an experience at the restaurant Sushi Kashiba, a Hotel Andra and La Campagne package, and a private dinner for 10 by world renowned, culinary artist Scott Carsberg.

Sushi Kashiba is owned by Chef Shiro Kashiba; pioneer of Edo-mae sushi in Seattle. Eat at the counter of Sushi Kashiba in front of Chef Shiro for a once in a lifetime experience.

The Hotel Andra and La Campagne package is designed for something far greater than your average night in the city. Hotel Andra is a sophisticated, stylish downtown Seattle hotel offering world-class service while La Campagne delivers a lovely Pike Place bistro experience.

Scott Carsberg is a passionate and dedicated American chef who has worked in Europe and in America. He is a consummate scholar of cooking and hospitality business. He is a winner of James Beard Award in 2006, and The Birra Moretti Best Emerging Italian Restaurant Award. This is a dinner experience for 10 like no other.


Buy your ticket now! Tickets for the dinner can be bought on the Eventbrite page.

We are very grateful for everyone who is supporting the auction, the dinner, and Japan Fair. We hope to see you there!

*********************************************
The ‘Friends of Japan’ Benefit Dinner supports ‘Japan Fair’, a cultural festival held in Bellevue, WA that celebrates the Arts and Culture of Japan. This festival, previously known as the ‘Aki Matsuri’, has a 20-year legacy within the community. Japan Fair celebrates and promotes local artists, musicians, craftsmen, businesses, and community organizations who practice Japanese cultural arts or have ties to Japan.

Honoring and preserving culture is an integral part of building a stronger, more peaceful region. We hope that with the Japan Fair event, we can work together to support Japanese cultural traditions and share them with new generations. There is no doubt that with your help and contribution we may continue to grow and strengthen the bonds of our diverse Pacific Northwest Community.

At our ‘Friends of Japan’ dinner we will enjoy local wines, a three-course meal, and the traditional melodies of renowned Japanese kokyu player, Mr. Daisuke Kiba from Japan.

【Kizuki Ramen】~Raffle Sponsor~

Today's the first day of summer! But look at this cold weather in Seattle and Bellevue. It's barely even 60 degrees out, and not to mention it's raining... So why not go to Kizuki Ramen to warm up? The hot, authentic Japanese ramen is sure to make you forget about the cold weather.

Like the ramen at Kizuki? We know, it's really good. That's why at Japan Fair 2017, we're giving away a total of $100 in gift cards for Kizuki Ramen! How can you win them? By entering the raffle drawing at the festival!
Raffle tickets start at 1 for $5, but you can also buy them in larger quantity at 5 raffles for $20 and 11 for $40.

Kizuki Ramen has been very supportive of Japan Fair, donating gift cards for two years in a row. They are expanding very rapidly, with 7 locations just in the state of Washington. Their newest one will open soon in Bellevue Square! They aren't just in Washington, but have also expanded to Oregon, Illinois, and Indiana. There's even locations in Taiwan and Australia!

Enter the raffle drawing at Japan Fair 2017 for a chance to win a gift card for the authentic Japanese Ramen at Kizuki Ramen!

**************************************************
Kizuki Ramen a.k.a Kukai Ramen starts in Tokyo back in 2002, and started its Ramen adventure in United States in 2012. 

Kizuki’s goal is to bring the most Authentic Japanese Ramen to United States. It took Kizuki about one and a half years to open its first U.S. restaurant in Bellevue, WA because it insisted on bring the authentic seasoning from Japan to U.S which a lot of the seasonings were new to the FDA at the time. We believe in “Making the Most Authentic Ramen by Japanese Product”

The Kizuki miso comes from Hokkaido prefecture. Kizuki flavors its shoyu ramen with ingredients from Yamaguchi, a region known for its soy sauce.

Kizuki pays close attention to each and every bowl of ramen to ensure quality and authenticity.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there!
We know Father's Day is often forgotten or at least overshadowed by Mother's Day but we haven't forgotten.

I've heard that 94% of people buy their Father's Day gift in the last 24 hours... but I'm sure your kids wouldn't do that, right?
