March 5, 2015: Join us at Ichimoku-kai (IMK)

Yup - it's still cold and snowy outside, which means... you guessed it! The best place to be is inside - at the cozy and lively Ichimoku-kai (IMK)! Join us on Thursday, March 5th at Manpuku Japanese Restaurant 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.

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