Kauai Matsuri Festvial 2020
The Kauai Japanese Cultural Society presents its three-day Kauai Matsuri Festival 2020. Beginning with a Welcome & Kickoff Dinner on Friday evening with Kauai and Japan delegations, this year's theme is "Kasseika" (rejuvenation of timeless traditions). On Saturday, the heritage festival will showcase different groups of Japanese talents to perpetuate the Japanese culture on Kauai. Taiko performances and classical Japanese dances will also be featured. Usually a featured performance from our Japan delegation is presented at this event along with some hands on activities (i.e. oshibana, origami, oshie), crafts, kimono dressing, tea ceremony, shodo, bonsai, ikebana, etc… Traditional Japanese cuisine will also be featured during the festival. This event is free and open to the public. On Sunday, the Kaisseika weekend culminates with a Kauai-Japan delegation spiritual pilgrimage.
