Annual Japan Festival held at Arlington Heights

As a first timer here in Chicago, I love attending different activities. And finally, saw this ad from Facebook and I immediately blocked my schedule. The annual Japan festival highlighted some of its new discoveries like Japanese foods, merchandises (anime!), clothing, entertainment (JPOP) and a lot more.

Forest View Educational Center in Arlington Heights is very accessible. We just took the PACE bus 208 going to Westbound Schaumburg and alight at Goebbert then about 10 minutes walk to reach the venue.

It was really fun awesome event experiencing the Japanese culture. Among the exhibitors are Noritake, Japan Airlines, Nippon Sharyo, Ramen Misoya Chicago, Slurping Turtle, Benihana and a lot more educational exhibits like Origami making, tea ceremony, Jpop music, Taiko performances and Ikebana (floral arrangement in Japan).

Here are some photos I took from the festival. I am also hoping that I can attend other Asian festivals as well.
