2015 Welcome Back Tsukimi!

Join us in wishing an “okaerinasai” to the recently returned JETs at our Tsukimi picnic! Friends and family are welcome to join us for taiko, tabemono (food), hot tea and, of course, full moon viewing!

When: Saturday, October 24th, from late afternoon until after sundown.

Where: Chautauqua Park in Boulder, the lower park area near Baseline Road and Kinnekinic Road.

We’re going to have this pot luck style so please bring a dish to share. Hot tea will be provided, but feel free to bring the beverage of your choice. It is autumn in Colorado, so don’t forget temperatures can drop fast especially after sundown!

Looking forward to seeing you there!
