For the 45th time, the Torrance Sister City Association hosted the Bunka Sai Japanese Cultural Festival fundraiser. TSCA organizes exchange programs with Kashiwa, Japan, which allow students from Torrance and Kashiwa experience each other’s cultures. As a former TSCA board member, I have seen this event grow tremendously from year to year. The food, merchant booths, and adult and youth performances make Bunka Sai one of the best annual festivals in the South Bay. The fresh dango draws me back each year, as I will continue to support TSCA.
