62nd Annual Ginza Holiday

Since 1955, the Midwest Buddhist Temple has been hosting its annual Ginza Holiday as a fundraiser and means to share Japanese and Japanese American culture with its Old Town neighbors. Locally renowned for its grilled Chicken Teriyaki lunch, homemade inari & makizushi, udon, corn-on-the-cob, sno cones, etc., each year it also hosts four artisans from Japan who have mastered traditional crafts dating back to the Edo period.
