Sushi & Sake Festival
The festival began as “JRA Annual Japanese Food Festival” to spread Japanese food and culture to the American festival. As its cuisine became more familiar and popular, the name was changed to “Sushi and Sake Festival” to introduce new trends in food and beverages. It is annually held in November.
Visitation to Sakura Garden
In honor of the Japanese American pioneers who paved the way for the community, every March, JRA treats the senior citizens, residing at Sakura Gardens, to a special sushi lunch prepared by our restaurant members which the residents look forward to.
Every so often, a seminar is held for JRA members to learn new health and labor issues, or any topic of interest by inviting a guest speaker.
