Join the Consulate in RI this weekend at the Black Ships Festival

Celebrate The Summer Like They Do In Japan 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM • THE JAPANESE CONSULATE TENT

This weekend, on Saturday, July 19, the 31st Annual Black Ships Festival will be held in Newport, RI. The festival celebrates the arrival of Commodore Perry’s arrival in Japan and the historic beginning of the US-Japan relationship.  The Consulate General of Japan in Boston will have a booth there and could use some help putting on their activities. 

Join staff and volunteers from the Consulate General of Japan in Boston for summer festival fun. Celebrate the summer holiday of Tanabata by writing a wish on a paper streamer and hanging it from the bamboo branches. Kids can try their hand at typical summer festival games such as Yo-yo Tsuri (fishing for balloons) and other activities.

The Consulate General of Japan in Boston would like to invite NEJETAA members to either ride with them to Newport or meet them there to help.  It’s a nice afternoon spent in a park and volunteers can come and go from the booth, taking time to check out other festival activities.  Volunteers should contact Susan Gill at s [dot] gill [at] bz [dot] mofa [dot] go [dot] jp  or 617 973 9772 x122.
