Feast on everything Japan Society has to offer at j-CATION, a day-long event taking over Japan Society’s theater, gallery, lounge, and classrooms.

Take your taste buds on a trip to Japan as the first-ever j-CATION digs into the theme of Japanese food. Feast your eyes on Edible Cinema, drool over innovative bento box creations, and enjoy how-tos, tastings, and unexpected pairings of speakers throughout the day. Authentic and unusual drinks and bites satisfy cravings of the curious. The evening explodes into a feeding frenzy of music as the delicious sounds of Asobi Seksu deliver the main course. D.J. AKI’s mouthwatering, sweet beats rock j-CATION into the night.

There is a suggested $5 donation. Food is available for purchase from local Japanese restaurants.
