I'm not exactly sure what homestyle tea service is, but it sounds like a casual way for some socialization. Presented by Ms. Anita Nakayama

Sunset Vigil, Memorial of Hope for Tohoku Japan
March 11th marks the 1 year anniversary of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku. As the sun is setting on March 10th on the shores of the Pacific Northwest, the sun will be rising on March 11th on the shores of Japan. Gather by the bonfire on the Golden Parks beach at 5 followed by a water blessing at 5:30. Seattle Kokon Taiko will lead a procession with drums and flutes to the shore for silent prayers at 6pm.
