    What is a "Bonenkai"? It's a Japanese-style party to celebrate the end of the year! A growing tradition with the JASGC, the Bonenkai is a cross-cultural, family-friendly event enjoyed by kids of all ages as well as adults.  (And you don't have to attend with family members -- this event is open to everyone!) The event features a dinner,* Japanese-style games for kids, a special guest animal appearance,  raffle and door prizes, and entertainment by the popular Kent Family Magic Circus.  We are holding the event at the Cincinnati Zoo again this year so that attendees can also enjoy the Zoo's famous Festival of Lights before or after the event. (Zoo admission is included in the ticket price.) 

    This event sold out last year, so please register early!

    *Please inform us by Friday, December 8, if you have dietary restrictions, and we will work with the Zoo to try and accommodate your request.
