Would any Dallas/Fort Worth members like to meet at the beautiful Fort Worth Botanical Japanese garden? The Japanese American Society of Dallas-Fort Worth always holds these culturally enlightening events and every now and then, I'll have the good fortune of meeting a fellow Japanese culture enthusiast. Anyway, I'd love to meet some of the community members but I feel that this event would not be appropriate for outlandish cosplay regalia. Take that as you will but I have no intention of turning this into some "cosplay" event!
