March 7, 2013: March Ichimoku-kai features a Japanese & English book swap

Those hardy souls who braved a snowstorm to attend February's Ichimoku-kai (IMK) proved that nothing will get in the way of a fun evening of cultural exchange, Japanese food and drink, door prizes and good fun!!  March's IMK at Manpuku on Thursday, March 7 will feature the return of our popular Japanese & English book swap, so there will be yet another reason to come!  

How does the book swap work?  Simply bring your unwanted Japanese or English books and trade them for others.  Any type of book is fine: textbooks, cookbooks, Manga, fiction, non-fiction, etc. There is no cost for the books, and anyone can take what they like.  (If you bring books and they remain unclaimed by the end of the evening, however, we would ask you to take them home with you as they cannot be left behind at Manpuku.)

Ichimoku-kai (IMK) literally means the “first Thursday meeting” and since 1995 it has been the Canada-Japan Society’s signature monthly social event, naturally taking place on the first Thursday of every month.  It is a great place to informally network, make new and interesting friends, practise your Japanese or English, and – most of all – have a good time!  Usually, half the attendees are Japanese and half are Canadian, all with an interest in or connection to Japan.  Attendees receive special food and drink discounts and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.

We hope to see you there - and come early for a good seat!
