If you didn't get a chance to experience one of the local summer festivals, the Ishioka Matsuri, held on Sept. 14-16, is well worth the effort to go see. It is one of the largest in the area. For info, call 0299-23-1111.
Another interesting event is the All Japan Triathalon Competition to be held in Hazaki on Sept. 12. Hazaki is located at the very southern tip of Ibaraki across from the city of Choshi in Chiba. It's a nice drive along the coast.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
