MORE UPDATE ON THE EVENT !!!!!!!

PLEASE READ EVEN IF YOU ALREADY SIGNED UP !!!!!!!!!!

Festival lasts 3 days, beginning Friday at noon and ending Sunday at 6pm. You can go whenever you please within this timeframe but be aware that this year is ULTRA SPECIAL:

1) It is the 110th anniversary of Japanese Immigration in Brazil, so the event is gonna have a great repercussion ! The Anhembi Arena is expecting Protected content , so you can imagine the size of the venue.

2) Plus, they are aiming for Guinness record, w a team of inspectors assessing all the foodtrucks and tasting all the recipes from all regions of Japan

3) Sometime, Saturday, Princess Mako, daughter of the Emperor, will be there w a huge security entourage and traffic limitations.
She will then tour in Brazil for 10 days (Rio, Paraná, etc...)

4) Also Saturday ALL DAY, there will be a huge commemoration show with all kind of performances, in the special Protected content that was built inside (BUT only available to those who got an invitation !!!!). I got mine last week, and people all over Brazil are getting them, in several cities and states, where Japanese descendants live. It is already sold out !

In view of all of this, I strongly recommend you go on Friday afternoon (much emptier) or Sunday (not so crowded) just to enjoy yourself.

But for those who choose to go w oher members, on Saturday anyway (unless she changes her mind), Selma Ishiguro will be there at 1pm at entrance.

All details about tickets, food, shows, shuttles, access, etc... on Protected content
