The Monthly Newsletter

Hi everyone,

With the holidays approaching, it's the perfect time to think about helping out in the community, and this month we have a chance to assist with a new project in SF Japantown. Plus, save the date for our holiday party on December 11. Hope to see you soon!


Nakayoshi Events

Volunteer / Official / November 21-27, 2021 

Volunteer with Japantenna!

We have a unique volunteer event for November! This month marks the opening of Japantenna in SF Japantown, which is a showcase of regional products from Japan. For this pilot period, we will promote Kagoshima prefecture. It'll also be a great way to learn a bit more about Kagoshima!
Japantenna is run by community volunteers and Nakayoshi's looking for your help to make the project a success!

Nakayoshi shifts are on 11/21 and 11/27 - look for one of our core members on those dates! If you're not available on 11/21 or 11/27, you're more than welcome to sign up for any of the other slots listed.
