Are you interested in Japanese culture? Have you ever wanted to visit Japan? Do you know that Berkeley has a sister city relationship with Sakai, Japan? This summer in July 2019 the Berkeley-Sakai Sister City Association is hosting 6 students from Sakai, Japan and we are looking for families interesting in hosting students. We are also looking for students who would be interested in participating in a student exchange to Sakai in July 2020. If interested, please fill out this Interest Form and/or come to our potluck Annual Dinner on Friday, March 8, 2019 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Berkeley Methodist United Church, 1710 Carleton St. Berkeley.
Barbara Stevens-Strauss is a Berkeley-Sakai Association Board Member who practices and shares with us traditional Japanese art forms including ikebana, raku ceramics, chabana and tea ceremony.
