Dear readers of Cultural News,
Since Safer-at-Home ordered by the County of Los Angeles in the middle of March, Cultural News has shifted the focus to Japanese-speaking community in Los Angeles. I have sent Japanese language e-mail blasts about Coronavirus Outbreak for more than two months.
Since May 25, we face the double unprecedent situations of epidemic and social unrest. I launch Weekly Cultural News (PDF edition) as a substitute for monthly Cultural News.
The inaugural issue PDF may be downloaded at the following link:
The June 01-08 issue has two articles: Little Tokyo has endured two consecutive nights of vandalism and looting; Confectioner’s efforts to build community recognized by awarding with Japan’s medal.
I am looking forward to hearing your comments and input about Japanese cultural programs in Los Angeles.
Cultural News Editor
