Thank you for your support!

The 5th Kizuna Japanese Spring Festival was a HUGE success!

Saturday, April 2, 2022, 11 am to 6 pm
Sammy Davis Jr. Festival Plaza in Lorenzi Park, 720 Twin Lakes Dr. Las Vegas, NV 89107

We thank you for enjoying the Spring Festival!

Many happy faces. What a beautiful day. Japanese culture was in full bloom in the Las Vegas community!

Kizuna Japanese Society thank you to all of the people who supported us to create the Spring Festival at Sammy Davis Jr. Festival Plaza on April 2, 2022. We couldn’t make this without the help of all the volunteers on that day, generous sponsors, vendors, the great performers, and of course all the attendees! What a special day to celebrate spring in Las Vegas together!

We want to express special thanks to the City of Las Vegas, and the Nevada Arts Council for creating this festival together with us. We also thank the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco, Coldwell Bankers, Las Vegas Japan Times, Kaminari Taiko, Korabo Taiko, and JFAN (Aki Matsuri team) for supporting us in many aspects. And, Kizuna Japanese Society would like “SUPPER SPECIAL THANK YOU” to Mr. Takuya Ishida for his generous donation to performers. We deeply appreciate your care for Japanese culture and community service.

We are evaluating this year’s festival, listening to all the comments we received during and after the festival. We appreciate all the comments from joyous ones to unhappy circumstances that happened even though we tried our best. All of those comments and suggestions from all angles are very valuable for us. We will try to make it better next event. Arigatou Gozaimasu!

Sake Tasting is from 2 PM to 5 PM for 21-year-old or up with a valid ID and a fee. Various sake from many regions of Japan.
