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, ENMA presents "Aki Matsuri (Fall Festival)",
a 2-day program of Japanese cultural, educational, and fun events
for all age groups, to celebrate 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.
2015 will be our 18th year to present the Aki Matsuri. "2015 Aki Matsuri" will be held on September 12 (Saturday) and 13 (Sunday), 2015 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!"
