Japan Culture Day and Miami Reggae Festival for Japan Relief

The Association of Florida Teachers of Japanese (AFTJ) and FIU Asian Studies Department are planning a Japan Culture Day to raise money for the Japan relief effort on April 30th, which is this Saturday. Admission is $10 for a series of games, workshops, and entertainment. There will also be Japanese foods and goods such as books for sale. All proceeds are going to the US-Japan Council Earthquake Relief Fund.

The event is at the Florida International University SIPU building from 10 AM – 3 PM.

The same evening, there is an annual charity Reggae event in Peacock Park in Coconut Grove that provides a humanitarian effort towards feeding the hungry. At that event, there will be a table representing the charity group New Clear (at the time of this post site is still under construction), which is working with Peace Boat to raise money to help the affected area of Ishinomaki in Japan.

The Reggae festival is free, but you must register for tickets in advance. The event is from 3 PM to 11 PM. Learn more here: http://rockazmvmt.com/


The Florida Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Alumni Association is supporting both of these events by providing volunteers, along with the South Florida Japan Meetup.
