June 5, 2014: Sake Tasting at CJS Ichimoku-kai

Canada-Japan Society is proud to present the return of SAKE TASTING at ICHIMOKU-KAI!

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.

This month we will feature a special SAKE TASTING featuring a variety of Junmai, Junmai Ginjo, and Junmai Daiginjo Sakes, as well as a selection of Shochu and Umeshu, courtesy of OZAWA Canada (

Ichimoku-kai doors open at 6:00pm. Sake Tasting begins at 7:00pm. Sake tasting tickets begin at $1 each.

(For those of you who aren’t into sake, no worries. Everyone is welcome to join in the regular Ichimoku-kai festivities while the sake tasting is going on.)

We hope to see you there - and come early for a good seat!
