* Report on MIFA Bazaar 2012 *
MIFA Bazaar is an annual event and this occasion marked its tenth anniversary.
Our thanks go to MIFA members, residents of Meguro City and staff of Meguro City Office
who kindly offered many goods to the bazaar.
Also we appreciate the help from volunteers who kindly helped prepare and organize the bazaar.
The first day of the bazaar was a °»Welcome day for foreign residents°….
We had 14 foreigners from 6 different countries. Visitors, smaller in number than last year,
enjoyed shopping spending one to two hours.
The second day was for MIFA members and non-members. We had as much visitors as usual.
The total proceeds from the two-day bazaar were 150,600 yen, which will be used for
the enrichment of support to foreign residents in MIFA activities. °°°°
Thank you very much for your cooperation. We plan to hold a bazaar next year as well.
* Report on MIFA Bazaar 2011 *
We conducted MIFA Bazaar in September this year, three months later than originally planned as we were affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake, we had quite many visitors as usual, however. We appreciate donations contributed to MIFA from many people such as MIFA members, residents of Meguro City, and so on.
The first day was a °»Welcome day for foreign residents.°… Thirty non-Japanese residents from 13 countries came and shopped then. They enjoyed shopping while choosing their favorites from many goods. An international student chose a drawer of Hinamatsuri (Doll's Festival) as a souvenir for his mother; a family chose toys and bags for kids; and a participant of MIFA°«s Ikebana class bought kimono and Japanese goods. They also enjoyed talking with MIFA staff and other visitors.
The total proceeds from the two-day bazaar was 147,881 yen. Fifty thousand of it was donated through Japan Red Cross Society to those affected by the earthquakes. The rest will be used for the enrichment of support to foreign residents in MIFA activities.
Our thanks go to everyone who cooperated with us at the bazaar.
We plan to hold a bazaar next year as well. We look forward to welcoming you to the event again!

The first day of the bazaar was a °»Welcome day for foreign residents.°… The second day was open to MIFA members before noon and open to non-members in the afternoon.
On the first day, about 30 non-Japanese residents came and shopped. Visitors were from over 10 different countries. Foreign volunteers kindly offered cakes and sweets, visitors enjoyed tea and desserts after their shopping. Some shoppers went back for a second time after the tea break.
