2022 Picnic-Undoukai

9/26/2022 5:48 pm

After decades of holding the event at Coyote Point, this was the first year we had the picnic at Burlingame High School. We had beautiful weather, and a record number of participants. We ate delicious bento prepared by Akagi Restaurant and Onigilly, and played the traditional races and games. We hope everyone had an enjoyable time together.


We thank the newly appointed Consul General of Japan in San Francisco, The Honorable Yasushi Noguchi and Mrs. Yuko Noguchi, and SMNG's Honorary Director Kozo Kimura and Mrs. Kathleen Kimura who took time out of their busy schedules to attend.


The Consulate General posted our event on their Facebook and Twitter pages
