Japan Night Concert

Tickets are now on sale for the second From Portland With Love – Japan Night Concert to be held on Thursday February 11th at the World Forestry Center, Washington Park.  Following the tremendous sell-out success of our inaugural concert in October 2014, and by popular demand, we are offering another opportunity to enjoy Japanese culture, food, drinks, and concert performance by Yoshie Ichige, Junko Ohtsu, and Tomoko Okada, who have once again generously donated their services.

Tickets include pre-concert appetizers and cocktails by Chef Naoko during the first hour of the event, and VIP ticket holders will receive priority seating and are invited to aperitifs and snacks with the performers, following the concert.

Tickets and detailed information can be found at fromportlandwithlove.org.

From Portland With Love Inc. is a non-profit organization established to promote Japanese cultural exchange in Portland, Oregon.  Portland has a unique relationship with Japan with its daily direct flights, own consulate office, numerous Japanese companies established here, and large Japanese resident population, etc.  As a Japanese national who moved to Portland to start a business here in recent years, I wanted to help promote Japanese cultural awareness here, and I founded From Portland With Love Inc. to do that.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to assist tsunami recovery efforts of Oregon Sister City Minamisoma.  I do hope you can attend, and I look forward to seeing you at this very special evening.
