To readers of Monthly Cultural News

From Shige Higashi, Cultural News Editor

Amid COVID-19 outbreak, we had to suspend publishing Monthly Cultural News in April 2020 due to all Japanese cultural events were suspended at cultural centers and art museums in Southern California.

Since June 2020, we started publishing Weekly Cultural News as substitute for the monthly publication.

I started Cultural News in summer 1998 to introduce Japanese art exhibitions and local Japanese cultural events to the public, native Japanese and American-born Japanese.

I eventually discovered Southern California is the home of more than 100,000 native Japanese, and the majority became U.S. citizen but they still need Japanese culture.

In last 20 years, there are more international marriages than Japanese marriages in not only Los Angeles but also in the US. For ordinary people, cultures such as language, songs, dances, foods, visual arts and martial arts, are major connections to communities.

Keeping Japanese culture is still important parts of their life for the old and younger generations in Los Angeles.

In 2020, Cultural News received $20,000 donation against $30,000 goal.

COVID-19 pandemic forces us to use more technologies such as Zoom and Webinar. To meet these requirements, Cultural News needs $30,000 donation per year.

Your supports are essential. https://www.culturalnews.com/donation
