Here's the Japanese Culture Club flyer for the 2021 fall semester!
The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix is getting ready to usher in the fall season! On September 25th, 2021, join us for our Annual Garden Clean-up! We will be caring for our serene space with a special focus on cleaning the beautiful Japanese-style structures in the Garden as well as doing light pruning, raking, sweeping, and more. Meet and serve alongside Garden volunteers, JFG staff, and community members as we work together to make the Garden beautiful in preparation for regular opening hours after a long, hot summer.

The Annual Garden Clean-Up Day prepares the Garden for its busiest season where more volunteer opportunities will arise in other capacities such as events or office volunteering. It's an excellent opportunity to preview what it's like to be a volunteer at JFG and get information on openings in the future as well. Come and make our garden your garden and join our volunteer community.

When: Sept. 25th from 7 am to 10:30 am
Where: The Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix, 1125 N. 3rd Ave.
Who: Old and new volunteers and anyone who wants to assist!

Please wear comfortable, cool clothing, closed-toed shoes, and garden gloves (extra pairs are available). We recommend applying sunscreen and insect repellent. Bring a water bottle as well!
Some light snacks and coffee will be available.
Participants under the age of 18 are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
After you check-in, you will be assigned to a clean-up crew working in a section of the garden according to your ability and comfort level.
Bring your friends and family!

During this time, RoHoEn will be adhering to the Garden's Covid19 Guidelines for your safety and ours. Wearing a mask during your volunteer service in the Garden is recommended, not required. For more information please visit our website here.

Not yet a volunteer?

Looking for a tranquil escape from the busy city? Don't want to drive to Sedona to experience the beauty of nature? Then you should visit the Japanese Friendship Garden, ROHOEN. Located on 3rd Ave in Central Phoenix, this scenic garden makes for a great escape and a perfect place to take someone special.

Already been and want to see something new? Learn the art of making Japanese gift packages, Omiyage, on the 11th of December. Make treat bags, origami, and more with origami masters, Doris Asano and Seiko Watkins! New events are scheduled regularly, so you'll never had a dull experience!

The garden also has various ways to offer support, such as donations and volunteering! The volunteering opportunities will build practical skills that deal with managing certain aspects of the garden.

The garden has something for everyone, and should be experienced at least once, if not multiple times! Have questions or want to buy tickets? Below is the link so you too can explore the many offerings of the Japanese Friendship Garden!

We made haikus are last club meeting and here are a few that our members created

Teddy bears are sent
Roses are given with love
They are a real treat (Bailey)

I love teddy bears
I love kisses and candy
I love you the most (Leslie)

Momoiro sakura blooms,
receiving bara and chocolate hato,
let's go off into the sunset together as honmei choco.

You are my ハート
You are my ロマンス
I want chocolate! (Emily)

Take my sweet rosy heart
run away with it this Valentines
A night felt with love
Translation: (Watashi no amai bara-iro no kokoro o toru
kono barentaindē ni nigeru aiwokomete kanjita yoru)
