UCSD Japanese Student Association and Nikkei Student Union are proud to present the fifth annual Matsuri Festival of 2013. As the only authentic Japanese Festival in the San Diego County, the Matsuri Festival is open to the general public, and guaranteed to entertain people of all ages. There will be Japanese festival foods, games, and performances that will let you experience a traditional Japanese festival right here in San Diego.

After that there are no more events this quarter. But if you want to spend more time with Nikkei STUDY Union, you could get your study on with us! Throw them D’s out the window because we all help each other stay focused on them A’s. Find out when and where we meet here.
Good luck to you all on your finals, don’t drive yourselves too crazy, and have a wonderful break and holiday. Peace.
