Welcome to the Eastside Nihon Matsuri Association (ENMA)
Home page! "Nihon" and "Matsuri" are Japanese
words. They mean "Japanese Festival".
ENMA is a non-profit organization
staffed by a team of community minded volunteers who are interested
in preserving and furthering the arts and crafts of Japan for
the enjoyment of all community members in the Greater Seattle
area and Pacific Northwest.
The Aki Matsuri is a celebration of Japan's rich cultural heritage.
A large number of local artists and craftpersons practicing
Japanese-style arts and crafts, performing arts, martial arts,
and Japan related businesses & organizations will be participating
during the entire two day event.
2013 will be the 16th year to present the Aki Matsuri. "2013
Aki Matsuri" will be held on September 7 (Saturday) and
8 (Sunday), 2013 at the Bellevue College's main campus located
in Bellevue, Washington.
We invite everyone to join in the many activities of the matsuri.
There really is something for everyone! The matsuri is an excellent
opportunity to experience the rich culture of Japan as we bring
"Japan to the Bellevue College for a weekend!"
