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.

Every Fall, we present "Aki Matsuri (Fall Festival)", a 2-day program of Japanese cultural, educational, and fun events for all age groups.




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 (including the performing arts and martial arts), and Japan related businesses & organizations will be participating during the entire two day event activities.

2014 will be our 17th year to present the Aki Matsuri. "2014 Aki Matsuri" will be held on September 6 (Saturday) and 7 (Sunday), 2014 at the Bellevue College's main campus located in Bellevue, Washington.

Now, the ENMA Board and Aki Matsuri Team members are putting the 2014 programs together. More information with an ever-increasing level of detail will be forthcoming as the program and plans develop. Please check our website from time to time to follow our progress.

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!"
