The Japanese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Orange County Japanese American Association, and the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center present Japan Fair2015, a weekend event of Japanese food, music and arts, in Little Tokyo on Sept 26 and 27.
Japan Fair 2015 will be held at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center Plaza, and will feature flowers and film events.
Renowned artist Yasuhiko Fujisawa will travel from Japan to create three large-scale murals consisting entirely of multicolored flower petals.
Children and parents attending the fair will be able to participate and assist this master of "infiorata," a unique technique originating in Italy, as he makes these Japanese-inspired works of art.
Japan Fair 2015 also will host Japan Film Festival 2015, where the hit anime "Yokai Watch" is scheduled to make its Los Angeles Premiere.
Children attending the screening will get the chance to dance together with "Yokai Watch" costumed-character Jibanyan. Manga fans will also enjoy the International Premiere of the live-action drama series "Attack on Titan: Hangeki no Noroshi."
The fair's main stage will feature taiko, koto, shamisen performances, kendo demonstrations, and a children's choir among other entertainers.
Japan Fair 2015 will take place Saturday, Sept. 26, from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm and Sunday, Sept. 27, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Tickets are only $3 for advanced purchase, and $5 on the day of the event.
