2018 Japanese Cultural Bazaar


All are welcome to the annual Japanese Cultural Bazaar! A day full of food, games, displays, raffle prizes and performances you don't want to miss!  #btsdbazaar2018


This year’s theme is “Mixed Plate." We are proud to have such a culturally diverse membership and history at our Temple. This year, through our food, that we'd like to share that culture and knowledge with you. Since 1926 our Temple has been a cultural and spiritual resource to the San Diego community and its through our annual fundraising events that allows us to continue to do so. So please come and enjoy the day with your friends and family!
