Friends of Japan Gala


Please come and join the Friends of Japan Gala to enjoy an evening of dinner, drinks, and an auction, all with live entertainment as we come together to strengthen the ties, grow our businesses, and personal relationships between our local American and Japanese communities.

The Friends of Japan Gala supports Japan Fair, a cultural festival held in Bellevue, WA that celebrates and promotes local artists, musicians, craftsman, businesses, and community organizations who practice Japanese cultural art or have ties to Japan.
