Mitsuwa Market Sweep (7/10)


Join JETAA Chicago on a fun and educational trip to the Japanese grocery story Mitsuwa. Outgoing JETs & alumni are encouraged to join us for a Japanese grocery scavenger hunt, paired with recipes for cooking in Japan! We will introduce basic grocery items and recipes that will help for survival in Japan. At the end, we will check out their Japanese food court.

This is event is free of charge. Please RSVP by Thursday, July 7.

If are taking public transportation, the PACE 606 bus from the Rosemont CTA Blue Line station drops off right in front of Mitsuwa. If you have a car, consider carpooling – good for the environment and for your karma.

Questions? Contact us at See you there!

Japanese Reading Group #21 (7/12)


For July the reading group will read the short story “Tasogare” by Miekichi Suzuki:

The Kurodahan Press is using the story for their 2016 translation contest. The deadline isn’t until September, but it will be fun to read it together and everyone can produce their own version. It would be awesome if the winner came from JETAA Chicago!

The story text and information about the contest is included in the PDF linked above.  Visit the Facebook Event page to RSVP.
