On Saturday, December 13th we will be having our 14th annual bounenkai, or Japanese year-end party. A bounenkai is a traditional event at most institutions in Japan to celebrate the end of the year.

I will be hosting the bounenkai at my home again this year. The doors will open at 5:30 pm, and we will start eating at around 6. It will be a pot luck style dinner with a Japanese theme, although any type of food is ok! Please bring your choice of beverage, although I will have plenty of soft drinks and sake on hand as well. In keeping with the tradition of bounenkai, this will be an event for the members of the Yoshinkan Dojo only.

Please RSVP by Saturday, December 6th. Hope to see you all there!
