Say ‘hi’ to a psychedelic July
with the most colorful event ever!
This coming July, UP Tomo-Kai will once again hold our anniversary celebration this year entitled
色の (Iro no) FIESTA: A Festival of Colors. The Philippines and Japan are countries always pulsing with life in all its myriad hues. Few other nations can boast of having such playful and unfathomable cultures, of which the best examples are their people. They weave along and against each other, creating tapestries of color that when merged become the soul of the land. It is with this vibrancy in mind that we would like to celebrate our Fiesta, by showcasing different aspects of the two cultures through a series of activities spanning the whole month.
