Yet another great event is happening in October: Ichimoku-kai (IMK), CJS's longest-running event, and this month featuring our Japanese and English Book Swap on Thursday, October 2 at Manpuku Japanese Restaurant!
Ichimoku-kai (IMK) literally means the “first Thursday meeting” and since 1995 it has been the Canada-Japan Society’s signature monthly social event, naturally taking place on the first Thursday of every month. It is a great place to informally network, make new and interesting friends, practise your Japanese or English, and – most of all – have a good time! Usually, half the attendees are Japanese and half are Canadian, all with an interest in or connection to Japan. Attendees receive special food and drink discounts and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.
How does the JAPANESE & ENGLISH BOOK SWAP work? Simply bring your unwanted Japanese or English books to IMK and trade them for others. Any type of book is OK - textbooks, cookbooks, Manga, Fiction, Non-Fiction, magazines…. anything really! There will be no charge for the books, and anyone can take whatever they like! (We only ask that if no one has taken any books that you bring that you take them home at the end of the evening as we have no place to store them...)
ALSO... People who come to IMK will have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for ROM Friday Night Live on October 10, another CJS special event! For more information on that event, click here.
Thank you, and we hope to see you there!
