At its core, JapanFest is all about improving the understanding and appreciation between the Japanese people and Americans. As such, the festival is a two day celebration that promotes multicultural education. Indeed there are a number of stages and workshops that show off various aspects of the Japanese culture. During the weekend, I had a chance to learn about Sake in Sake 101, learn about making sushi, learn the different aspects of Japanese cuisine from an award winning chef, and sample quite a bit of Japanese food and drinks.
