We celebrated Tanabata with our guests. Tanabata (July 7) is known as the Japanese star festival, originating from a Chinese legend of the couple Orihime and Hikoboshi, represented by the stars Vega and Altair. We enjoyed these festive somen noodles and chilled food which helped us cool off. Children decorated the bamboo branch, and we all wrote wishes on colorful strips of paper called ‘tanzaku’ and hanged them on the bamboo branch. Some dressed in Yukata. It was fun! We hope everyone enjoyed experiencing traditional Japanese culture in a fun Tanabata (Star Festival) atmosphere! Thank you for coming! Now I’m looking at your wishes written in colorful tanzaku papers on the bamboo branch. They make me feel warm and smile. Let’s wish for good weather tomorrow so that the lovers can meet and our wishes will be fulfilled! If not,

Dear our wonderful members and guests,It is with deep sadness to announce that we have decided to close JJ Kitchen for the time being.During the past 5 years, we have enjoyed cooking and discussing cultural issues with each and everyone. However, Junko had a stroke in June and is currently in the hospital undergoing physiotherapy. Since we do not know how long this will take, we have come to the conclusion to close our doors. For those of you that still have our vouchers, we will be contacting you separately.For JJ Kitchen members, we will contact you regarding future lessons.We thank you all for the love and support you have shown JJ Kitchen, and we hope that we can cook together again.
