Hey guys, here’s something I got from my friend from the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (San Francisco Japantown). I attended the first workshop, and it’s a really great opportunity. I plan to participate further and hope to make a video. I hope you guys (i.e., Daisuke) will be interested! You can be of any Nikkei generation to join. –Asuka, JASS Historian
