Passing It Forward: From One Generation to the Next

Saturday, September 21, 2019

4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Registration and Silent Auction open at 3:00 p.m.

Join us for the Center's largest fundraising event of the year in the Center’s recently renovated Nisei Community Hall/gymnasium as we celebrate Tabemasho 2019.

This year, we will feature culinary creations from chefs, restaurants and vendors from the SF Bay Area, Hawaii and even Japan! Many of the booths will share dishes that have been passed down to them from family, friends and mentors for us to enjoy.

We are honored to highlight special guests from Japan for our event this year:

Rihaku Inoue of Tokyo, Japan – A modern calligraphy artist who incorporates contemporary colors with traditional calligraphy. She designed the image for this year’s invitation, and will be selling specially created uchiwa.
Ryoichiro Enkawa – A 3rd generation craftsman who creates one of a kind Hita geta. He will be performing at the event and his geta will be available for purchase.
Momotaro Nori – One of Japan’s most prestigious brands of nori. They will feature their citrus blend “kabotsu” nori at the event, as well as sharing different ways of how to eat yaki and ajitsuke nori.

Emcee’s Wendy Tokuda and Mike Inouye, of NBC Bay Area, will be on hand to liven up the evening! It is definitely an event you will not want to miss.

Back by popular demand – Matsuri-style yatai! Instead of serving a traditional banquet dinner, we will again feature matsuri-style food booths hosted by local restaurants and community chefs. Come graze your way through a Japanese festival with friends, family and loved ones! Don't be late... registration and silent auction open at 3:00 p.m., food booths open at 4:00 p.m.
