TABEMASHO 2019: PASSING IT FORWARD — From One Generation to the Next

Please join us for our largest fundraising event of the year! 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. There will also be two special Japanese artists performing their work throughout the evening.

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 will be on hand to liven up the evening! It is definitely an event you will not want to miss! Guests are encouraged to wear their favorite yukata, hapi coat or festive attire.

Registration and silent auction open at 3:00 p.m.

Please call (415) 567-5505 or email event@jcccnc.org for additional information. The Center is located at 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94115.
