Nihongo Chat + J-Culture Mon, May 8, 6-7:30 PM

Join Japanese-language students and native Japanese speakers at this informal gathering to practice Japanese and English! Anyone some Japanese language experience is welcome to attend.

For 30 minutes during our May 8th meeting, special guest Souheki Mori will demonstrate how to properly wear a casual cotton kimono (Yukata). Yukatas are often worn in onsen towns and is the typical dress code for guests at a ryokan. Yukata has also become a way of dressing for summer festivals. After the demonstration, we will move back to the usual activity of practicing conversational skills.
