    Come volunteer at the Japan booth at this year's Ethnic Enrichment Festival. We always have wonderful food to eat and Japanese items to buy! This three-day festival attracts people from all over the Midwest. Approximately 65 countries / cultures are represented throughout the weekend's festivities.

    This year we have one booth for both our bazaar and kitchen. We ask that volunteers stay flexible -- we'll assign volunteers as needed. Please add a comment when you register if you have questions or restrictions.

    Did you know we have a beautiful Japanese garden at Loose Park? The Loose Park Japanese Tea Room and Garden, dedicated in July 2006, was conceived as a cultural exchange between the Sister Cities of Kurashaki, Japan and Kansas City, Missouri. The Tea Room is set in a traditional Japanese garden featuring a small ornamental fountain, large boulders, many shrubs and groundcovers with a pathway leading to the Tea Room. The small garden is a place for quiet meditation.
