First Event!

Saturday, July 9 @ Downtown LA's Union Station, around ~6pm-ish at the Starbucks
(yes, they finally opened a Starbucks, a Famima, and a pretzel place)

It also happens to be Japanese Heritage Night at Dodger Stadium, Game 2 vs. San Diego Padres. A shuttle goes between the Stadium and the Station (free if you show your game ticket; otherwise it's $15 Stadium parking *sad panda*). Gametime starts 7:10pm. Pre-game festivities including appearances by the Nisei Week Court, the Consul General of Japan, a taiko drum performance and more at 6:30pm. Discount available online using the code: JAPAN. Starts at $8 and up.


The Japanese penchant for abbreviating names never ceases to amaze me. Already someone on the J-twitter referred to the group as "LosJack" and I did a double-take. And I learned the other day that Starbucks is shortened to "su-ta-bu" which sounds like "stab". I guess I do get cranky without my coffee...


  1. I wish I could be there to attend! :)

  2. I wish you could come! I'm sure you'd have a very funky outfit for the occasion :D

  3. Did this event ever happen? :) I would love to see photos!
