August 2, 2012: Live Jazz, Funk, R&B, Poetry and Improvisation at Ichimoku-kai

Looking to start the August long weekend on the right foot? Join us at the Canada-Japan Society's Ichimoku-kai (IMK) on Thursday, August 2 for another great evening of cultural exchange, "oishii" Japanese food and drink, door prizes, and lots of fun!

Ichimoku-kai literally means the "first Thursday meeting" and since 1995 it has been the Canada-Japan Society's monthly social event, naturally taking place on the first Thursday of every month. It is a great place to make new friends, practise your English and/or Japanese, informally network, learn about life in Canada and Japan, and most of all... have fun! Typically attendees are around 50 percent Canadian and 50 percent Japanese, all with a common interest in or connection to Japan. At IMK you will receive special food and drink discounts, get to talk to lots of interesting people, and have the chance to win some exciting door prizes.

This month's IMK will also feature a special musical performance by Chris Kao, Chris Hercules and Riko Shimatani.  Come out and hear some cool jazz, funk, R&B, poetry and improvisation. It's sure to be a fun evening and we hope to see you there!

Also... come early to ensure a good seat!
