The Cool Japan Festival is Tomorrow and Here are Some Vendors That Just Signed Up!

A Shinto Shrine

The JapanTown Cool Japan Festival has welcomed some last minute vendors, which means even more stuff to look forward to! From Queens hails Anime Castle, a popular manga, video game, and cosplay store that will be selling their anime merchandise. There will also be Jassi, a non-profit organization which takes care of social services needs of people of Japanese origin in New York City. Jassi will have a booth where they will be teaching origami, a fun activity for people of all ages. Seikou Shodou Group, a calligraphy school, will be showing people how to practice the centuries-old Japanese art form. Finally, the International Shinto Foundation will have an informational booth on Shinto. The ISF will also bless the festival in a Shinto ritual.

We are happy that these companies and organizations have joined us in the Cool Japan Festival, and we hope everyone will come and enjoy the celebrations tomorrow! We look forward to seeing you!
