- Several important Japanese events are on this month. Thanks to P. Anne Winter and Linda Malloy for telling us about them and sending posters. Ms. Winter writes: “Every one’s summertime favourite. 300 yukata dancers at night singing and swaying to the music. A must for those who love things Japanese.” Everyone can join the participatory dancing and other festivities. See: http://www.jccc.on.ca/en/events/annual/natsu_matsuri.php.
