The Mukai “Master” Classes  are online classes that dig a bit deeper into food, art and culture of the Japanese and Asian American experience.
The Mukai Symposia is a series intended to promote knowledge and understanding of Japanese culture and the Japanese-American experience. Speakers and panelists known to be experts in their fields are invited to lecture, make presentations, and discuss topics wit participants. Most symposia will be held online using the Zoom platform, but we will also gather in person when pandemic concerns are lifted.
