August 2018 Recap

Nakayoshi's annual fundraiser to make somen and udon at the Nihonmachi Street Fair. It was a major success thanks to the hard work of our volunteers! Proceeds go towards sustaining Nakayoshi for the entire year.
Nakayoshi, AABA and ABL members embarked on a journey into a canyon full of mysterious teepees, spontaneous lunging, insightful banter and pick-up basketball, ending the afternoon in a lush Chinese garden replete with crab, shrimp, and other delicacies.
