1.    Stage performances
As in previous years, the Japanese School, Weekend Japanese School and other local cultural groups performed. In addition, Kurodabushi Kensyo-kai (Samurai stage performers) from Hyogo and Maiko dance performers from Kyoto were invited as symbols of the friendship between WA and Hyogo, and the vibrant exchange between our two nations.


2.    Marquees
This year there were more than 30 marquees offering ramen (noodles), okonomi-yaki (pancake), tako-yaki (octopus dumpling), yaki-soba (fried noodles), kaki-gori (shaved ice with syrup) and lots of Japanese sweets and drinks. Also on offer were Japanese arts and crafts, Japanese anime and Cosplay goods, as well as attractions for children.

In the committee’s tea ceremony marquee, we welcomed the Hon Dr Mike Nahan, MLA; representing the Premier, Mr.Masanobu Yoshii, Consul-General of Japan and Mr. Keith Yong, Councillor of the City of Perth.
