Screening on the evening of Saturday, April 9th 2022

April is upon us, yet JAFWA still shines forth as your local source of anime-watching goodness.

Thanks to everybody who signed the petition to keep it open, but to quote Tokyo Underground:

It’s a sad day. We have just been advised the Hyogo Prefectural Government Cultural Centre will close at the end of March 2023 and will cease all activities at the end of September this year. The Centre has the largest Japanese resource library and wonderful harmony Japanese garden, and provides adult Japanese language classes, cultural workshops, film nights, exhibitions, displays, seminars and school visits . A regular stall holder at the Perth Japan Festival. The aim of the centre is to promote understanding and exchange between Western Australia and Hyogo through education, government, culture, tourism, sports and business. We will miss you.
