Western Japan Flood Relief

As many of you know, there have been many victims of devastating floods in Western Japan over the last few weeks. Florida Jetaa has decided to support the donations campaign created and monitored by #USJETAA. If you are looking for a safe and reliable way to get funds to Japan, we encourage you to go through US JETAA!

Since the beginning of this fundraiser, USJETAA has received overwhelming support and has almost reached their goal of $5,000 to support Japan Platform (ジャパン・プラットフォーム) and their great efforts connecting funds to organizations on the ground in western Japan.

If you haven’t donated yet, please consider helping them reach their goal. #prayforjapan #westernjapan

After 13 years, John McGee and his family, who spearheaded and led Tampa Natsumatsuri, are returning to Japan. We are sad to see them go, but are excited for a chance to see the festival grow with a newly established Festival Committee under the leadership of Festival Director Tom Gregorich. You don’t have to live in Tampa to participate!
