Yokoso/Welcome to Bath Japanese Celebration Weekend!
Please join the fun Thursday, February 2-Sunday, February 5, for a weekend of exciting events for families, children, and adults. From hands-on activities such as a cooking class, family carnival, and Japanese dinner, to entertainment with Celebrity Sumo wrestling, a gardening presentation, and Japanese movies, there is something here for everyone!
Organized by the Bath-Tsugaru Sister City Exchange Program, in celebration of our historic relationship, and student cultural exchanges for the past 20 years with Tsugaru (formerly Shariki), Japan. Proceeds will go toward scholarships for Bath area students traveling to Japan, and to help with costs of hosting Japanese students in our community.
