Japan House invites you to visit during our Annual Bazaar : Mottainai!

A treasured Japanese concept, Mottainai is a word meaning 'what a waste' or 'don't waste'. Focusing on the "4 R's", reduce, reuse, recycle and respect, we have gathered unique items and accessories from all our friends around the world and will be offering them for sale to you in order to give them new life. In addition to those treasures and a few items imported from Japan, the Japan House Interns have been working hard to create handmade crafts for sale.

The Bazaar is packed with an incredible array of reasonably-priced items, such as individually Asian pottery, kimono and yukata, origami crafts, handmade items, traditional American quilts, scarves, scrolls, posters, scrolls, books, prints, chado equipment, jewelry, gift certificates, and more! 


Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted. All proceeds from the Bazaar go to support the Japan House Internship Program. Donations are accepted during the event.

Stop by as many times as you wish! This is a family friendly event, and there is definitely something for everyone!
