In Japanese, tabemasho means “let’s eat,” and that’s exactly what attendees will be doing on Saturday September 25th at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California’s annual fundraiser, ~TABEMASHO~. Starting at 4pm, there will be a mochi-pounding event, then appetizers and a seated meal presented by local restaurants and chefs (Seiji Wakabayashi, bushi-tei; Alex Ong, Betelnut; Patricia Unterman, Hayes Street Grill; Nick Balla, Nombe; and many more), plus sake and shochu tasting, Japanese specialty foods, and homemade Nikkei comfort foods. There will also be live and silent auctions. The evening will honor George Okamoto Sr. of Nomura & Company, a pioneer of the California rice industry.
Tickets are $100 for reserved table seating, and $25 for children 6-12 years old. Purchase your tickets early as last year’s event sold out.
