We are celebrating Japanese language and culture at “Japan Day” on April 9, 2017, uniting Japan Club’s annual event J-Night and Family Sunday Funday of the Festival of Art. At 11:00 am, we begin the Japan Day. There are a number of hands-on activities (e.g., origami, go, kendama, paper-mask making, etc.). Then, Sac State Japan Club will host stage performances from 12:00pm. The stage performances include taiko drumming, traditional bon dance and modern fun dances, martial art performances, cosplay, and dances and singing by students from various schools and universities. In addition, French club, Italian club, Spanish club and Alumni Association of World Languages and Literatures will run their table at the one corner of the library quad. Other events on Sunday (Sunday Fun-Day website)
