CJSO Monthly Dinner/ Presentation

Kiko Sushi Bar, 349B Preston St., Ottawa

January 18, 2012


A wonderful time was had by all. Members enjoyed Miso soup, Salmon Teriyaki, Steak Teriyaki and more, and drinks flowed freely. Star Wolf, a former president of CJSO, made a stirring presentation on "The Successful Japanese Export People do not think of!" The latter turned out to be the humble Rice Cooker with members marvelling at models passed around. Carolina crowned an otherwise straight lecture, with valuable rice cooking tips covering rice washing, measuring water manually and serving rice, pure and unadulterated.

To support the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, part of the admission fees collected from attendees were donated to Ambassador Ishikawa by Mr. Sam Toma, President, Canada Japan Society of Ottawa. Ambassador Ishikawa made the opening remarks and expressed deep appreciation to the participants for their support and solidarity for the people of Japan. He further stated that Japan will continue to work hard to restore normal life to the people of Japan so that they may hold cultural events such as sake tasking like they used to. Participants were shown pictures related to sake, and watched detailed presentations by Mr. Sam Toma and Mrs. Yumiko Tsunakawa, Director/ Dinner Coordinator, CJSO. They tasted various kinds of sake and exchanged opinions about the differences in tastes in a very relaxed atmosphere.
