October 3, 2013: October Ichimoku-kai (IMK) at Manpuku

Everyone is welcome to attend the Canada-Japan Society's Ichimoku-kai (IMK) on Thursday, October 3rd at Manpuku Japanese Restaurant! Join us for a great evening of cultural exchange, "oishii" Japanese food and drinks, door prizes, and lots of fun!

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.

This will be your LAST CHANCE to purchase discounted tickets for Katsura Sunshine’s RAKUGO performance on Saturday October 5thRakugo (落語、literally meaning "fallen words") is a form of traditional Japanese comedic storytelling and it’s rare to see a performance with English subtitles, let alone totally in English. Katsura Sunshine is the only foreign professional rakugo performer, and he’s wrapping up his cross-country performances this Saturaday at the beautiful Winter Garden Theatre. The CJS has discounted tickets at $30 ($27 plus a $3 handling fee) which is $8 off of the original price of $38 (plus handling fees)!! 

Fall is a very busy season for the Canada Japan Society, so please come on out and hear about all the exciting events coming up in the next couple of months. 

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