On Friday, February 3, JASW held a Setsubun Happy Hour in conjunction with the Washington Nomikai Group! The office was transformed into a bar with kirin beer, sake, and delicious Japanese snacks. Guests gathered together to practice Japanese and celebrate the holiday. About halfway through the night, an Oni ran through the office. Guests grabbed their fuku mame (fortune beans) and scared the Oni away.

After the Oni left, we celebrated with a raffle. Four lucky guests went home with Japanese snacks, Hakutsuru sake, or ANA materials. The night only got better from there, and people continued to enjoy the festivities! Everyone had a great time meeting new people and seeing old friends. This was The Society’s largest Happy Hour ever, with over 50 people in attendance. Thank you too everyone who came, and we look forward to seeing you at our other events throughout the year!
