Reiko is was until recently the past president for the American Japanese Citizen’s League

Reiko told us about the Bon Odori festival which is a Japanese traditional summer festival that honors ancestors who have passed on, remembering all they have done in the past and celebrate their ongoing presence in life today. The Bon dance is a folk dance that depicts human activities such as digging or fishing. It will be held August 17th on Water Street in Olympia and the dancing starts at 7pm. All are welcome to participate.
