“Matsuri means festival in Japanese and this festival will provide UNK students and the Kearney community with information about us [Japanese students] and our culture,” said JAK Public Relations Officer Yasuyo Shikano. “We will be providing free Japanese food such as ‘Okonomi-yaki’ which is Japanese pizza, ‘Udon’ which is Japanese soup with noodles, and other kinds of Japanese food.”

Matsuri 2002 will also feature live pop and rock music, Hip-hop dance performances, and a skit based on a traditional Japanese story entitled “Momomusha”.

UNK students and the Kearney public are invited to attend this free event. This event was originally scheduled for Oct. 2 and was postponed due to the weather.
