    Hi, unfortunately I am very disappointed of the organization of this meet up group and lack of communication. I arrived in the location and tried to find the group, but only one mobile number emailed me by this meet up group didn't work. I am definitely sign out. Thanks.

    Both events were awesome. Communication by phone is very hard....the background noise is so loud we couldn't hear anything and I can't tell I have a text. I hope everyone had a good time.

    These Cultural Festivals are like MINI Vacation taking you to another place, sharing their FOOD, MUsic and Dance. Many of you may not ever leave this country... so please join me in this day of celebration

    This event allows you to go into the Temple and get some pictures (you are in a place of worship),for a small FEE you can sit and be part of the Tea Ceremony which last about 10 minutes...TRADITIONAL. Lots to do and see. We can also if were early take a stroll down the bridge and get some train & LA River before the Obon. I hope you sign the one that just finished this will be held in the lot next to the church. DON'T MISS OUT!
