July 5, 2012: July Ichimoku-kai (IMK) Features a Japanese and English Book Swap

The summer is in full swing and the Canada-Japan Society's Ichimoku-kai (IMK) returns on Thursday, July 5 for another great evening of cultural exchange, Japanese food and drinks, door prizes, and fun!

Ichimoku-kai literally means the "first Thursday meeting" and since 1995 it has been the Canada-Japan Society's monthly social event, naturally on the first Thursday of every month.  It is a great place to make new friends, practise your English and/or Japanese, informally network, learn more about life in Canada and Japan, and most of all, have fun! Our attendees are usually around 50 percent Canadian and 50 percent Japanese, all with a common interest or connection with Japan. At IMK you will receive special food and drink discounts, get to talk to interesting people, and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.

This month, for the first time, we are featuring a Japanese & English Book Swap!  Bring your unwanted Japanese or English books and trade them for others.  Textbooks, cookbooks, manga, fiction, non-fiction, magazines... anything is ok to bring and exchange!  There will be no charge for the books and anyone who attends IMK can take them.  (All we ask is that if you bring books and some remain at the end of the evening that you kindly take them home with you - books cannot be left behind at the restaurant.)

We hope to see you there!
