The Consulate-General of Japan in Houston and the Japan-America Society of Houston will be hosting the Japanese film "Ping Pong" at Rice University.

I saw this film years ago and who could honestly dislike a serious/dramatic story about ping-pong?? I was even inspired to compete in our university ping-pong tournament!!

Details can be found at:

For those interested, we can meet up earlier and grab a quick dinner and go together or just meet at the event.

Although you don't have to RSVP, apparently RSVPing will give us priority seating. I will send the host a group RSVP for anyone who RSVPs here.

Also, I won't be able to make it, but they will be filming "ALWAYS - Sunset on Third Street" the day before (January 22nd).

    It looks like the movie will still be airing, but since I live pretty far, I don't think I'll be able to make it tonight. If you do go, hope you enjoy the movie!!

    I emailed the host if they are still going to show the movie tonight, but I haven't received a response yet. In any case, a movie is not worth the concern of getting into an accident. Given the concerns, I think I may stay put tonight...

      the event is hosted by a different organization and they haven't cancelled it. People who live far in this group may drop out though...
