    The Arnold Arboretum
    Bonsai and Penjing Collection (Larz Anderson Bonsai Collection)
    125 Arborway, Boston, MA 02130

    Come and experience a very unique opportunity in the Arnold Arboretum's Bonsai and Penjing Collection of dwarfed potted plants. With an Arboretum volunteer, you will be able to go inside the pavilion, hear about the history, culture, and care of these amazing and very special plants. 

    The Larz Anderson Collection of Japanese Dwarfed Trees at the Arnold Arboretum was originally imported into the United States by the Honorable Larz Anderson in 1913, upon his return from serving as ambassador to Japan. In April 1937, Isabel Anderson donated the majority of her late husband’s bonsai collection (30 plants) to the Arnold Arboretum, along with the funds necessary to build a shade house for their display. The rest of the Anderson bonsai came to the Arboretum following Isabel’s death in 1949. The core of the collection consists of 6 large specimens of compact hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Chabo-hiba’)—each between 150 and 275 years old—that Anderson purchased from the Yokohama Nursery Company. Additional bonsai have been acquired or added to the collection overtime, the most recent being a gift of 6 specimens in the fall of 2015. All told, 39 masterfully curated specimens comprise the Bonsai and Penjing Collection.

    The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury will offer a series of traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony Presentations on Sundays, June 24, July 29 and September 30 at 2:00p.m. The program will be given by Tea Master Glenn Sorei Pereira who was trained by the Urasenke School of Tea. He will explain the ceremony and answer questions.

    The ceremony takes place on the museum grounds surrounded by a Japanese garden. It is presented in a tea hut designed by the Japanese artist Sano Gofu and built in Kyoto for the Weyerhaeuser family. Known as Wind in the Pines Hut, it is authentic except that two sides are left open for viewing the ceremony. It is one of
    only a few such tea huts open to the public in New England. Folding canvas chairs are provided or visitors are invited to bring their own.

    Admission to the public tea ceremony is free but seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Guests are advised to dress with weather conditions in mind since this outside event is closely connected with nature. Arrangements have been made to hold the event inside the museum in case of inclement weather.

    1 Broadway, 5th Floor

    Cambridge, MA 02142

    In their first collaborative event, CIC and Yume Wo Katare join forces to bring a unique food and expression-filled experience to CIC. We encourage all CIC members, local entrepreneurs, and innovators to join in for a special night full of dreams, achievements, inspirations, and innovations, accompanied with hearty bowls of delicious ramen (no vegetarian option available).

    All participants will get a chance to write down their dreams or goals, and if you feel inspired enough from the atmosphere of the event, there will be an open mic for you to speak your dreams to the room. Meanwhile, everyone will get a chance to taste the signature ramen from Yume Wo Katare! As a special treat, founder Tsuyoshi Nishioka will be onsite to share his vision on making the world a better place by speaking your dreams.

    This event is free, but space is limited - be sure to RSVP!

    About Yume Wo Katare:

    Yume Wo Katare is more than just a tiny ramen shop in Cambridge, MA. The translation is “To Speak Your Dreams” which is also the philosophy that the owner Tsuyoshi Nishioka lives by, encouraging others to do the same. Through the philosophy of “To Speak Your Dreams” Mr. Nishioka created the concept of a place and a forum where people can gather and share their dreams while having a bowl of ramen in this tiny hole-in-the-wall outside Porter Square T Station. Ever since the establishment of the shop back in 2012, Yume Wo Katare’s signature ramen has attracted many ramen enthusiasts from around the country. However, it is the philosophy and practice of sharing dreams that creates long-lasting impressions on visitors!

    Mr. Nishioka feels that CIC and Yume Wo Katare share a very similar philosophy. CIC creates spaces and opportunities for many innovators to speak and work on their goals and dreams. With the sense of genuine support for ideas that both CIC and YWK possess, this collaboration is inevitable!

    Black Ships Festival

    Friday - Sunday, July 13-15, 2018

    Independence Park

    419-459 Thames St, Bristol, RI 02809

    The 35th Annual Black Ships Festival offers a variety of events that emphasize both Japanese art and culture. Events include a formal Gala, Japanese Arts & Crafts such as Origami and Ikebana; Martial Arts, and a Japanese Tea Ceremony. A highlight will be the Taiko Drums!

    The Black Ships Festival commemorates the historic achievements of Commodore Matthew C. Perry, USN, of Newport, Rhode Island. The “Black Ships,” or “Kurofune,” refers to the Japanese term for foreign ships which, with one exception, were excluded from Japan for two hundred years until 1854. Commodore Perry negotiated the Treaty of Kanagawa in 1854, the first treaty between the United States and Japan, thus ending two centuries of Japanese isolationism. The Black Ships Festival celebrates the signing of the treaty, which brought the two countries together as trading partners.

    The Black Ships Festivals in Rhode Island and in Shimoda, Japan commemorate this historic event with a celebration of friendship. This year is the 79th festival in Shimoda. The Festival is presented by The Japan-America Society and Black Ships Festival of Rhode Island, Inc., a non-profit, non-partisan organization.

    New York, NY 10001

    Hatsune Miku is a Japanese music sensation, a 16 year-old blue-haired girl with a unique voice and prodigious energy.

    What makes her special is that she is not a human singer, but a virtual persona who uses a computer-generated voice and 3D graphics to perform on stage. With a repertoire entirely provided by individual creators, she is the first truly crowd-created virtual talent. But being virtual doesn't stop her from filling up concert halls, or teaming up with major artists like Lady Gaga and Pharrell Williams!

    Internationally popular with over 2.5 million followers on Facebook worldwide, the increasing demand for concerts overseas paved the way to MIKU EXPO, a tour that has so far taken Hatsune Miku to Indonesia, the United States, China, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, and Malaysia. In 2018 Miku returns once again to the US and Mexico for another round of concerts!

    The Summer program includes lessons in Japanese or English in a classroom setting, and students of any Japanese/English language ability are welcome, from the beginner to advanced level. In addition to language classes, there are electives in literature, history, art, or culture, as well as Cultural Workshops, and many opportunities for interaction and learning outside of the classroom, including Off-Campus Activities and Field Trips such as visiting historical landmarks, watching Broadway musicals, and making corporate visits to US-based Japanese companies such as restaurants, hotels, media companies, and airlines.

    Keio Academy encourages participants to stay in their residences, as they believe it helps promote community building. Each room accommodates two participants, and they do their best to pair Japanese and American students together in order to encourage bi-cultural exchange. They offer residence hall activities such as ice cream-making, tie-dyeing, team-building exercises, and arts and crafts. The buffet-style cafeteria serves three hot meals a day of both American and Japanese cuisine.

    Commemorating the 73rd Anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, this Peace Memorial is a free event and open to public

    You can help fund the 2nd annual "Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Memorial Service" in Boston! This production is aimed to cultivate love and peace, and we can all be a part of it.

    Mariko Kanto attended and volunteered at the "Peace Gathering" in New York City in 2016, and was was so moved and inspired by the message of the event that she decided to organize the same event in her hometown of Boston, MA: the 2017 "Hiroshima-Nagasaki Peace Memorial Service" in Boston, produced with her theater company, Actors Refuge Repertory Theatre (ARRT).

    This year they are calling for community support to hold this important memorial once again. Learn more on the event's YouCaring page.

    "Because we believe in the power of 'love and peace' to end all wars. We also believe that 'art' can cultivate 'love and inner peace.' It is proven to us that 'art / music' survives throughout history of past, present and future."
