In-person celebration canceled at Bellevue College Carlson Theater


Dear Supporters

The 3rd annual US-Japan Coming of Age Celebration transitions to a fully virtual event.

We regret to announce that we can no longer offer in-person participation and will be
transitioning to a fully virtual event. We were looking forward to welcoming 100 new Seijin to
Bellevue College’s Carlson Theater, however, due to the increasing Omicron variant cases
across the state of Washington, Bellevue College has canceled all in-person events on campus.
We believe this is the best choice to protect the participants’ health and safety.

While we were excited to offer a hybrid (virtual & in-person) SEIJIN-shiki for the first time, we
are now shifting our celebration to becoming a vibrant virtual event.
The whole class of SEIJIN 2022 will meet virtually on Sunday, January 16th.
Challenges continue to await us, but we will be “United by Challenges,” as our slogan goes.

We have changed our course, but we will give our all to deliver the best possible SEIJIN-shiki
for the new SEIJIN of 2022.

The general audience can view the SEIJIN-shiki on YouTubeLive starting at 1:20 pm on
January 16.
