Annual Lantern Lighting Festival

It’s that time of the year again! In collaboration with Como Park and the St. Paul-Nagasaki Sister City Committee (SPNSCC), JASM would like to invite all to take part in the largest Japan-related festival in Minnesota.

His parents’ divorce has split the family, with his younger brother Ryu and their feckless rock musician dad living over a hundred miles away.

With the help of friends, Koichi organizes an expedition to the mid-point of the train lines, with Ryu coming from the other direction—all of them thinking about what they...
