Lantern Festival

The Nihonjinkai has a booth at the yearly Lantern Festival in Como Park in August. We have many popular items including authentic kimono, manga (comic books) and antiques, as well as beautiful craft items such as original cards, knitted items and decorations.

Monthly Meeting

We meet every second Monday of the month at the Japanese Library in Bloomington. Anyone is welcome to attend, but please contact us first.


Garage Sale

We hold our annual Garage Sale in front of the Japanese Library every year in May. Member or not, anyone can stop by freely, enjoy a lovely sunny day (we hope!) and take home beautiful and unusual Japanese antiques, kimonos and other gently used treasures.


JASM's New Years Party

Stop by our booth at the New Years Party, a yearly celebration in January where you can enjoy Japanese food, purchase Japanese items, see dance and martial art performances, enter a karaoke contest, and much more.
