New SEIJIN qualification
You do not need to be Japanese to be recognized as SEIJIN!
We welcome anyone whose birthday falls between January 2000 and March 2002, and who resides in the USA.

At this time we are planning to have a hybrid event that combines an in-person event with a virtual online component using Zoom & YouTube. However, due to the changing COVID-19 situation, we may choose to have an online event only. We will keep you updated here!
